Divers in San Diego raised a rare World War II navy dive bomber to the surface of a reservoir where it crashed in 1945. The next step is to move the SB2C Helldiver from the water to the shore and and keep it intact. Divers spent two days in zero-visibility water removing mud and debris holding the plane down. The plane went into the reservoir after the engine failed during a training mission. It is one of a handful in existence and if it can be restored, it will be displayed at the National Naval Aviation Museum n Pensacola, Florida.
