The B-29 At The Bottom Of Lake Mead

Divers from the National Park Service Submerged Resources Center recently returned from Lake Mead, where they went to capture images of a B-29 that went down in the lake in 1948. The Parks Service had to fight to keep the remains at the bottom of the lake, where they have been preserved remarkably well. A photographer with the center describes the site and what it looks like from under the water.
