Navy divers are working at the site this week, looking for clues as to who may have been lost in the plane.
The next time you take the boat out, don't be surprised to see a team of U.S. Navy divers in the waters off the coast of Jupiter. They are in the area, responding to a find last December by a local diver. Randy Jordan stumbled upon the wreckage of a World War II plane, about 185 feet below the surface of the Atlantic. He reported finding the Curtiss SB2C Helldiver and was told not to touch it. It wasn't until two weeks ago that Randy heard from the Navy. They said they would be coming with a team of divers and with archaeologist Heather Brown. She suspects the plane was part of the many training missions conducted near South Florida. After 68 years underwater, work is now underway to discover whether anyone went down with the plane. Divers set up shop at the wreckage site on Wednesday.
