So, how did these aircrafts find their way to the bottom of the ocean? It’s not because they were damaged in combat, but rather, because of logistical issues. The planes were in perfect condition, but it would’ve cost more to transport them back to the United States than to submerge them below the sea.
After being underwater for 70 years, the planes have deteriorated and become a place for beautiful, vibrant ocean life. Their metal surfaces have transformed into colorful living statues, and Mueller’s photographs showcase schools of fish, algae, and coral reclaiming the manmade aircrafts, dwelling within their crevices.
