USS Lexington (CV-2) has been located by Paul Allen's team at two miles depth in the Coral Sea. Photos of the remains, and surprisingly well preserved aircraft are circulating.

One can hope the two miles-worth of water and proximity to Australia will act as deterrents.

Two miles depth is hard to salvage from from even more advanced wreck stripping scum. Or professional reclamation teams for that matter. So hopefully the Lex will continue to rest peacefully. More importantly though, now that we know where she is, she can be monitored.
