I've often wondered that very thing. There are lots of wrecks in the water in the Pacific, several B17s in the water that are known and probably recoverable, 2 P38s in shallow water around Indonesia, My own grandfather ditched a Corsair within swimming distance of one of the Pacific Islands, etc and so on. If there is a relatively intact B29 laying at the bottom of one of our man made lakes, you know there's lakes and rivers around Europe that hold alot of our downed planes...and unfortunately, our boys
John, I read the duck hunt blog. While progress is slow it looks promising. It would be great if they found the C53 as well. All those planes that went down looking for them, those 2 that fell into deep cracks...what an awful way to die.
