I know many of you served in the Navy. I just wanted to share how folks are very excited at a model building website I visit because Paul Allen has found the remains of the U.S.S. Lexington (CV-2) that was sunk at the Battle of the Coral Sea.
She's in three pieces, but things like deck guns are well preserved to such an extent that rifling can still be seen. However, folks are really going nuts over the relatively well preserved state of some of her aircraft in the debris field. These are very rare TBD Devastators, and early versions of the Dauntless dive bomber and Wildcat fighter plane that are mostly intact on the ocean floor. One Wildcat still clearly displays four Japanese kill markings.
I just wanted to share this with fellow patriots.
