MIDWAY ATOLL, Northwestern Hawaiian Islands – A crew of deep-sea explorers and historians looking for lost World War II warships have found a second Japanese aircraft carrier that went down in the historic Battle of Midway.

The first scan used low-resolution sonar, so the crew sent the AUV back to get higher-quality images.

“I’m sure of what we’re seeing here. The dimensions that we’re able to derive from this image (are) conclusive,” Kraft said. “It can be none other than Akagi.”

“She’s sitting upright on her keel, we can see the bow, we can see the stern clearly, you can see some of the gun emplacements on there, you can see that some of the flight deck is also torn up and missing so you can actually look right into where the flight deck would be,” Kraft said.
