Default USS Indianapolis wreckage found in the north Pacific



Quote:
Civilian researchers on Saturday announced that they have found the wreckage of the USS Indianapolis, a World War II Navy cruiser that was sunk by a Japanese submarine on July 30, 1945.

The Indianapolis was found by a research team led by entrepreneur Paul G. Allen at a depth of more than 18,000 feet in the north Pacific Ocean, according to a Navy press release. About 800 of the ship's 1,196 sailors and Marines survived the sinking in 1945, but only just over 300 survived the four-to-five-day wait for rescue.

"To be able to honor the brave men of the U.S.S. Indianapolis and their families through the discovery of a ship that played such a significant role in ending World War II is truly humbling," Allen said in the release.

"As Americans, we all owe a debt of gratitude for the crew for their courage, persistence and sacrifice in the face of horrendous circumstances. While our search for the rest of the wreckage will continue, I hope everyone connected to this historic ship will feel some measure of closure at this discovery so long in coming."

The ship remains the property of the Navy and its location will remain confidential and restricted.

In a few more weeks, whenever Paul Allen's ship gets back and the video footage edited, we should get a better look at the entire Indianapolis wreck. There will be torpedo and bottom impact damage. The ship appears to be mostly in one piece looking at the few images that have been released and seems to be lying on its starboard side. Doubtful any human remains will be seen, they will have long been consumed by marine organisms, just as seen at the Titanic and other wreck sites.

Amazingly, a website I just visited said there are approximately 19 Indianapolis crewmen still alive.
