    From Petrel Instagram...

    Petrelís Midway mission has concluded today. This was an extended project for our team, fraught with challenge and adversity from its inception which has taken its toll. Upon recovery of our ROV from the KAGA dive, the ROV suffered damage that was beyond our ability to repair on site. Regrettably, as a result, there will be no video or photographs of AKAGI from this mission. Most importantly though, our team and assets are safe and will return in 2020 with some exciting new projects!⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣.⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣The Petrel team are honored and proud to have been a part of this extraordinary and successful expedition. We sincerely thank our colleagues, support groups and participating partner agencies, Naval History & Heritage Command, US Navy, Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, Midway Atoll staff and you, the public, for your unwavering support and feedback.⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣.⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣There is so much more work we would like accomplish here in the future and look forward to returning soon.⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣.⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣We are posting an extended version of the KAGA video this evening and will resume with the Battle off Samar wrecks shortly.⁣⁣

    I guess we can expect them to find Soryu soon, as they all went down in close proximity.

    Amazing, absolutely amazing. It's such a damn shame that he's not alive to see his success roll on and on.

    So let's see, what's the tally of just the major finds now?

    Lexington
    Hornet
    Wasp
    Juneau
    Indianapolis
    Musashi
    Yamashiro
    Fuso
    Kaga

    It's like a who's who of World War II legends
