USS Hornet Found
" The late Paul Allen’s research team discovered the wreckage of World War II’s USS Hornet (CV-8), the aircraft carrier that launched the Doolittle Raid and participated in the Battle of Midway before being sunk in the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands by Japanese dive bombers, torpedo planes and ship-launched torpedoes. "

An important bit of history, esp. the Doolittle connection:

Not yet but I do imagine a large ship like that would have raised the sea level. Tongue
