USS Gerald R. Ford Begins Builder's Sea Trials


A sunken U.S. aircraft carrier that went down during World War Two has been found off the coast of Australia. The USS Lexington was located in the Coral Sea and was lost during the Battle of the Coral Sea against Japan in May 1942.

The U.S. Navy confirms that the ship was discovered by a search team led by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and his company Vulcan. "Lexington was on our priority list because she was one of the capital ships that was lost during WWII," Vulcan spokesman Robert Kraft says.
