Midway Underwater Selects Part 1

This clip shows video imagery of wreckage of Japanese aircraft carrier IJN Kaga on the seafloor at 17,000 feet. This artifact is a section of hull from the starboard side of the ship that held a pair of 25mm antiaircraft gun galleries. The piece is about 40 feet long and 30 feet high, lying inverted on the seafloor. The cameras view the object from above, looking down into the underside of the inverted gun tubs. The edges of the artifact are strewn with anemones. This piece included a landing light array that was unique to Kaga.
