It apparently took some delicate maneuvering, but on a recent visit to Papua New Guinea, Paul Allen's R/V Petrel team dropped their high tech ROV on the near shore wreck of B-17F-20-BO "Black Jack/The Joker's Wild" (S/N 41-24521).

I managed to grab some screen shots of their Facebook page and attach them below for non users. FB members can go directly to the R/V Petrel account and scroll down the to the original posts from 30 March 2018 using this link ...


And you can all read more about the history of the plane on the "Pacific Wrecks" website here ...
