It terms of extraction I figure better late than never. lol.
Now the mystery is how they got there. Also I wonder if the same could be done for Japanese vehicles at the bottom of Truk Lagoon?
Although all images there show them heavily encrusted with marine life, these tanks seemed preserved by the fact they were mostly burried by sand and where in a tidal zone in the Black Sea. Not the warm Pacific, but who knows?
Now what I would love to see, is someone ponying up the doe to pull this monster out.
