The U.S.Navy is examining the sunken remains of a WWII plane in an attempt to ID the aircraft and the pilots.

They’re exploring a plane wreck from World War II discovered by local diver Randy Jordan.

“I really feel like, finally, we’re going to find out who belonged to that airplane and if somebody is in it,” Jordan said.

He stumbled upon the wreckage of a Curtiss SB2C Helldiver in December. Instructed to not touch the tiny two-seater, all he could do was wonder.

“I was starting to lose hope we were going to find out too much about it. It’s in 185 feet of water,” Jordan said.
