    And a survivor that viewed the footage said there was $40 in his locker that the moderates/interviewer could have.

    That team has been really active finding ships and aircraft lost at sea.
    I’m glad they are keeping the locations secret out of respect to those entombed there.

    As I recall, Robert Ballard, the man who found the Titanic and Bismarck, swore to keep sites secret after he saw what happened to the Titanic. I don't recall if it was the discovery of the Yorktown or PT-109 where he first did that, but I remember it being a big deal at the time.

    There is a titanic thing in Branson that people brag about with real artifacts but I can’t bring myself to go there because it’s like robbing a grave.
