Few will ever have the chance to dive this area and see these WWII relics as it is in a military restricted area. Hope you enjoy.
After the war (WWII) these SBD Dauntless dive bombers were decommissioned (stripped of usable parts), loaded on a barge and sent to their final resting place in 100 feet of salt water on the bottom of the Kwajalein lagoon. These planes saw valiant service in the Pacific theater. These were carrier based planes, note prominent tail hooks.
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
