    Dauntless recovery

    'Pristine' WWII aircraft lifted from Lake Michigan | HonoluluAdvertiser.com | The Honolulu Advertiser

    Wouldn't that be a thrill, recovering something like that? 300 feet is well below my diving depth. Definetly some mixed gases for that.

    Still, I find most search and recovery jobs a RUSH....even if some do take several dives to find the bloody thing.

    Plenty more where that came from. Lake Michigan has dozens -at least- of WWII aircraft sitting on the bottom.

    The USN's newest tri-gas rigs are pretty cool and would allow you to dive farther then you ever dreamed.

    Colder the waters the better for WWII planes,tanks and wrecks. No better place then the Atlantic or the Great Lakes to shop.
