  1. About 75% of our planet is covered in water, and only about 05% of that has been mapped! Ship travel goes back to the early days of humans who first fished from shores and then thought to build something to enable them to go out a bit farther in the water! I'm sure there are literally thousands of ships on the bottom of the sea, but today, with sonar, if they are not too deep, they can photograph them. It's very sad to think of all the lives lost when rough seas take a big ship like a carrier to the bottom! RIP to all those who have lost their lives that way.

  2. USS Lexington had the longest flight deck along with her sister ship Saratoga at the time of World War2, No other Carrier in the USN had the longest flight deck at the time, they were both unrivaled.

  3. I would think that National Geographic would be more accurate with the facts re the Lexington being the first aircraft carrier to be sunk. I think the HMS Hermes was sunk by the Japanese off the Coast of Sri Lanka on the 9th of April 1942.

    TO VIEW THE VIDEOS PASTE THE VIDEO – WORD – ESSAY TO A WORD DOCUMENT AND THEN CLICK & PRESS THE CTRL KEY ON THE VIDEO.

  5. Sorry, Lexington was NOT the first aircraft carrier sunk. The Japanese aircraft carrier IJN Soho was sunk by aircraft from Yorktown in company with Lexington. After Soho was sunk, Lexington was attacked and severely damaged. Her injuries were so severe that she was finally sunk by escorting destroyers before the rest of the task force withdrew.

  6. I always wondered, if the worlds water was removed, it would be staggering what it would look like of ships, planes and boats by the hundreds of thousands. I "think" you could fly from kennedy to london without gaining altitude. Just take off the runway and fly level across the pond and view all the sunkenstuff and mid atlantic ridge…..someone should make a CGI video 😎
