Stunning photos of underwater graveyard of WWII planes

By Web  • 1800 Views

This place with WWII planes is not a latest discovery, it was known since 1960s. But it's the first time you can see such impressive photos of this underwater graveyard.

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?..

No, not Spongebob. When a person talks about something resting underwater, you could think about Titanic and hundreds of other sunken ships. Believe it or not, there are also hundreds of sunken planes!

This graveyard full of WWII planes near the Marshall Islands exists about 70 years already. Here you can find Douglas SBD Dauntless dive bombers, F4U Corsairs, TBF/TBM Avengers, Helldivers, B-25 Mitchells, Curtiss C-46 Commandos and F4F Wildcats. All these planes didn’t crash right here. They were discarded there after the war just because it was too expensive to return them home.

Now this underwater graveyard attracts divers from around the world. Brandi Mueller, a scuba diver and a boat captain, is among them:

I find diving [to see] the airplanes really exciting. It’s a strange thing to see airplanes underwater. Shipwrecks you expect, but not airplanes.

Mueller made tons of stunning photos of these WWII planes in their unnatural habitat. We collected some of them.
