NOAA remotely operated vehicle Deep Discoverer, deployed from NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, surveys the wreck of a B-29 Superfortress resting upsidedown on the seafloor near Tinian Island during a 2016 expedition. This is the first B-29 crash site found of over a dozen American B-29s lost in the vicinity of Tinian and Saipan while flying missions during World War II.
