USS Lexington discovered

Some 76 years after being scuttled due to serious damage in the Battle of the Coral Sea the American aircraft carrier Lexington has been located two miles below the sea about 500 miles north east of Australia. Battle damage aside the ship is in remarkably good condition, including Devastator and Wildcat aircraft that are still on board. However we should also remember the 200 or so lives lost in her final battle.
