Wreckage of two WWII bombers found off Papua New Guinea

The wrecks of two B-25 bombers have been found in the waters off of Papua New Guinea.

Using a sonar-equipped underwater robot, a University of Delaware scientist and colleagues have discovered the wreckage of a B-25 bomber that was shot down in the waters off what is now Papua New Guinea during World War II, the team said Tuesday.

Historical records indicate that the plane, found in February on the west coast of the South Pacific nation, is associated with a crew of six servicemen missing in action, the Project Recover team said. The nonprofit group has provided the Department of Defense with detailed documentation of the wreck for a possible mission to recover any remains.
