USS Lexington Found
I saw this a few weeks ago on the BBC. A search team has discovered the wreck of the USS Lexington, a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier lost during World War II in the Battle of the Coral Sea in May 1942. It was the first naval battle between aircraft carriers, and the first in which ships from the opposing sides neither sighted nor fired directly on each other.
