Divers find WW2 bomber in Newfoundland lake

A technical dive-team have discovered a long-sought WW2 heavy bomber in Gander Lake, Newfoundland. Four air crew had been aboard the Consolidated B-24 Liberator on 4 September, 1943, when engine failure caused it to barrel-roll into the deep lake waters on take-off.

Diver Jill Heinerth was co-leader with Russell Clark of the 15-strong Canadian, US and French expedition team that carried out six dives on the wreck. The project was supported by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS), for which Heinerth is explorer in residence, the Shipwreck Preservation Society of Newfoundland & Labrador (SPSNL) and Ocean Quest Adventures.
