When Russia's first nuclear submarine malfunctions on its maiden voyage, the crew must race to save the ship and prevent a nuclear disaster.
The Russian submarine used for filming was sold to the U.S.S. Saratoga Museum Foundation in Rhode Island for use as an exhibit. It subsequently sank while docked in Providence during a severe rainstorm and was used by the U.S. Navy as a salvage training exercise. After it was raised, it was no longer suitable as a museum, and was sold for scrap metal.
Capt. Mikhail Polenin:
All compartments: report readiness!
The US Navy helicopter flying around the K-19 is a Sikorsky S-58T, which had its first flight on 19 August 1970, about 9 years after the incident had taken place. In fact, this is not a Sikorsky S-58T but is a UH-24 which is a variant of the S-58T. The S-58T is the Civilian designator for this bird. Also, the S-58T ended production in 1970. It first entered service in 1954 so therefore COULD have (and actually Would have) been the helicopter used to scout the K-19.
