U.S. Airman's Remains Found in Quebec Waters-- Part 2

In 2009, divers from Parks Canada found the barnacled, upside-down fuselage 40 meters down.  When they saw it, they stopped work and contacted American authorities as remains were probably still aboard.

This month the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command dispatched a 50 person team to investigate in the salvage ship USNS Grapple and was at the site for 30 days.

They have found the remains of one airman and sent DNA to a lab for testing.  They also found many well-preserved artifacts in the near-freezing water.  There are no plans to raise it.
