Undersea diver Mike Nelson is a former navy frogman who now works at Marineland. When an experimental supersonic fighter is forced to ditch at sea, the manufacturers hire Mike to locate it and attach a marker buoy so it can be raised. Mike has little trouble finding the aircraft in about 60 ft. of water. What he also finds is the pilot, alive in the airtight cockpit, but with only 15 minutes of oxygen remaining in his tanks. It up to Mike to find a way to get him out. Written by garykmcd

Super episode! Anyone know where Parry Bivens appears in it?
24 July 2018 | by ytfirimarSee all my reviews

This is a really good Sea Hunt ep, and they sure started with a bang! Has you on the edge of your seat the whole time! When the plane hits the water . . . wow! Some amazing footage! Would love to know if anyone knows where Parry Bivens appears, as he is billed at the end of the ep as actually appearing.
