Now that some U.S. military pilots have deposited their payloads in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef during a joint training mission, the U.S. 7th Fleet says it will lead the recovery of the two inert and two unarmed explosive bombs. The bombs are in an accessible 160 to 200 feet of crystal blue water in the World Heritage Site, considered one of the planet’s top diving destinations. It’ll be tough, but with enough grit and determination they’ll see this mission through.
