WW2-era Aircraft Carrier Possibly Located
Graf Zeppelin, Germany's only attempt at building an aircraft carrier during WW2, was believed to have been scuttled at the end of WW2, but the exact whereabouts of the ship had been unknown. On 28 Jul 2006, however, the Polish navy reported that it was almost certain that a wreck discovered in the Baltic Sea of Wladyslawowo is the Graf Zeppelin. At this point, because of the wreck's immense size, recovering is said to be impossible. For more details, please see the BBC website.
