On October 1, 2010 Hawaii Undersea Research Lab (HURL) conducted a test and trial dive off Ewa with Pisces V and Pisces IV, exploring the wreckage of SBD Dauntless 2136.
Steven Price adds:
"Besides the two Dauntlesses, our test dives resulted in the discovery of 2 LST's, 2 LCT's, 2 very old torpedoes, other assorted ordnance, and 3 vehicles. One of the LST's is most likely the USS Chittenden County sunk in 1958 as a target by the USS Sargo SS-583. The other amphibious vessels may be from the West Loch Disaster."
