Underwater Graveyard of WWII Planes is All Sorts Of Spooky

Underwater Graveyard of WWII Planes

World War II planes have been resting in peace at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean for the last 70 years, Diving and see this graveyard with your own eyes will be one amazing experience.

Brandi Mueller‘s photos allow us to admire these treasures without a wetsuit.

“I find diving [to see] the airplanes really exciting,” Mueller, a scuba diving instructor and boat captain, told Mashable. “It’s a strange thing to see airplanes underwater. Shipwrecks you expect, but not airplanes.”

The planes didn’t actually crash at this particular location near the Marshall Islands, though. They were discarded there after WWII because it was too expensive to transport them back to the United States from the Kwajalein Atoll, according to Mueller.

Planes include in this watery graveyard are Douglas SBD Dauntless dive bombers, F4U Corsairs, TBF/TBM Avengers, Helldivers, B-25 Mitchells, Curtiss C-46 Commandos and F4F Wildcats, which sit in the sand about 130 feet below the surface.
