Dive to the bottom of the Adriatic Sea in search of the Tulsamerican, a B-24 bomber that crashed off the coast of Croatia during World War II. In 2010, divers located the plane. Now the Department of Defense, aided by the Croatian Navy and some of the world’s leading underwater archaeologists, sets to work investigating the wreckage.

It's on at 2000 here in Iowa, check your local listings. It's on again the 8, 9, and 11th.

Watched it last night. Interesting on some of the history of the B-24. I've met at least one of the group members - not shown last night. Fascinating and very respectable work they are doing.
