Diver Finds WWII Aircrafts

Lying at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean is a massive graveyard containing more than 150 WWII planes.
Brandi Mueller, a coast guard officer from Wisconsin, was scuba diving in the Marshall Islands when she came across the incredible site. The aircrafts were dumped five miles off the coast of Roi-Namur seven decades ago when the Pacific War ended in 1945 and they've remained untouched ever since.

She told the Daily Mail, "For me, diving on airplanes, especially World War Two airplanes is really unique. Diving on shipwrecks seems normal, you expect ships to have sank...And because these planes didn't sink because of the war they are special. They should have flown more, lived longer..."

The find includes historic American planes including a Douglas SBD Dauntless dive bomber. It's best remembered for delivering the fatal blows to the Japanese carriers at the Battle of Midway in June 1942.

Many of the aircrafts have surprisingly remained intact -- others weren't so lucky and lay in pieces on the ocean floor. However, while they may be broken, they won't soon be forgotten.
