IJN Kaga found.

Given the short time in which the 4 Japanese carriers were sunk (all in one day?), it seems there’s a distinct possibility the other 3 will be found in the not-too distant future.

Paul Allen's legacy continues to grow.


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

You know you’re having a bad day when you lose 4 fleet carriers in one day! Maybe Tojo and Yamamoto had a Calgon bubble bath later that evening to ease the stress?

These are the first. USS Yorktown was found a few years back.

There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Looks like they just found what they believe is the USS Johnston DD-557,and is probably the deepest naval wreck ever found. LINK

The destruction is just heart stopping, she's just scattered all over the ocean floor in barely recognizable chunks of twisted metal. frown
