Title: USS Lexington
Post by: Airymouse on March 07, 2018, 10:36:05 AM
Billionaire Paul Allen, the Microsoft co-founder and Seattle Seahawks owner, has made another huge nautical find: the USS Lexington, which was lost at the Battle of Coral Sea 76 years ago.
The fleet aircraft carrier, the first to be sunk by opposing carrier aircraft in World War II, was found near Australia below Coral Sea in a remarkably well-preserved condition, news.com.au reported.
The expedition crew of Allenís personal research ship R/V Petrel found the missing Lexington two miles below and about 500 miles off the eastern coast of Australia, according to USNI News.

Good on Allen for funding stuff like this. Major perks of the kind of money he's got I suppose. lol
