Stern of Abner Read Found-- Part 3: Locating War Artifacts At the Bottom of the Sea
The Japanese seized Kiska in June 1942 and weren't driven off until June 1943 after relentless shelling and bombing by U.S. forces.
Along with the Read' stern, a dozen Japanese ships, two Japanese submarines and numerous downed American airplanes are believed to be in local waters. And this, in part, is the reason Project Recover is there as that is a bi part of it, the locating of lost World War II aircraft at sea.
The project got a $600,000 grant from the NOAA and spent two weeks in a research vessel off Kiska in July.
