Survey of Hawaiian WWII wrecks completed

Researchers in Hawaii have completed a survey of sunken WWII-era planes and shipwrecks which dot the ocean floor along Maui’s southern coast.

“The wrecks along the coast are like windows into the past and they remind us of the sacrifices made during World War II,” said Hans Van Tilburg, NOAA maritime heritage coordinator. “The information collected during this project will help us better understand this chapter in our history and its significance to the Pacific.”
