Chuuk Lagoon. Micronesia

Chuuk Lagoon. Micronesia | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it


In February 1944 the USA launched an attack on Chuuk Lagoon that devastated Japan’s main WWII South Pacific base and sunk 12 warships and 32 merchant ships in the process. The majority of these ships are still located on the lagoon’s floor today and make Chuuk Lagoon "the biggest graveyard of ships in the world." Many of these ships are also still in excellent condition and attracts thousands of divers each year, eager to explore the incredible site. The huge war ships also house the remains of fighter aircraft, torpedoes, motorcycles railroad cars and tanks. Chuuk Lagoon really is an underwater WWII museum and one of the most incredible dive sites in the world.

Douglas Dakota DC-3. Turkey

Douglas Dakota DC-3. Turkey | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it


From the photo above it may look like the passengers on this paratrooper plane met a disastrous end, but this Douglas Dakota DC-3 didn’t crash into the sea during the Second World War. The plane was actually intentionally sunk in 2009 in order to create a unique playground for divers to explore. The aircraft, which was used as a transporter for a Turkish paratrooper regiment in WWII, was sunk in the waters of Cas, off the coast of Turkey. It lies 21 metres beneath the surface of the Mediterranean Sea and can now be freely explored by divers and is home to numerous schools of tropical fish.
