Canada finds US Air Force plane lost in 1942

Underwater archaeologists in Canada have accidentally found a US Air Force place that sank in the Saint Lawrence seaway in 1942.

Nine persons were on board when the aircraft went down. Four of the crew escaped the flooding plane and were rescued by local fishermen rowing out from shore in open boats in rough seas. The five others perished, trapped inside.

Officials said sonar scans indicate the plane appears to be in good condition and divers hope to recover any remains of the five victims in the coming weeks.
