Celeon pointed out in another thread that there are a lot of sunken submarines still undiscovered. Which got me to thinking...

Is there a particular crash or wreck site you would like to see them find?

They have found the Titanic and the Bismarck so now I guess I would say Amelia Earhart's plane. I have a feeling that may never be achieved.

Amelia Earharts plane I will second. although I do believe it is at the bottom of the ocean. I think she just missed the island. if she was off her navigation by half a degree or if there was a cross wind blowing....

another one for me along those lines would be any of the many many bermuda triangle cases. I mean where are they? did a large percentage end up in the same area? ships and planes that disapear, OK i'll bite whered they go.

and of course the two big ones the area 51 craft and noahs ark. that is of course if area is true to begin with, and if so it would be cool to see it wouldn't it

The Noahs Ark went "ashore" on a mountain in modern eastern Turkey, which is close to Caucasus, where most of any culture has it's link to: language for one!

Remind me by the end of next week to tell you about a world war II wreck I'm working with in my job. Interesting case, but I can't talk about it just yet. I promise to revive this thread and give you a complete rundown.

It is very germane to this community.

As we say "More to follow..."

The Avengers in Flight 19, I forgot about them. It would be nice to discover the wreckage so they could try to piece together what happened.

Secret files about Winston Churchill? I'm not familiar with that story. Were these supposed to be German files with info about Chruchill?

I would also like to know about the Flight 19. I mean, the commander of that flight was an experienced officer (although he was not very familiar with the patrol zone), but there are some very weird things about it, about the radio transmissions (like all five planes had problems with their compassess at the same time). This is a wreck that is really intriguing.

yes I know it went ashore, and even know about where. but i dont believe any one has actually seen it. and thats what im getting at, the wreck not just the story. Flight 19 is a good one for the triangle.

I read about a lone survivor from a U-boat off Biscay that was ruptured at depth after 13hrs of depth charging. Apparently, this guy just bobbed up on the surface with the air bubble, but the boat was more than 30m down (90') and no one could work out how he survived, not even him.
When I find that story, I'll put a link here about it,but finding the wreck of that boat would offer some clues as to what happened to allow him to survive.
According to the story, a British officer on the DD that picked him up said "You are a rare fish" or something similar
