Wreck of IJN Kaga found!


Paul Allen's Petrel has been on a tear locating and documenting the lost ships of the Pacific War.

Today they released footage of the wreck of IJN Kaga.

What an amazing find! Unlike Yorktown whose sinking location was recorded, most of the documentation and logs for the Japanese carriers at Midway were lost or destroyed so their exact sinking locations are unknown.

With luck, knowing her location will make it easier to find the remaining ships of Midway.
