Paul Allen’s historical attempt to find the aircraft carrier that put up such a stiff fight against the Empire of Japan’s air force, during the early stages of World War II, has finally paid off. Allen’s expedition to the southwest Pacific has yielded stunning photos and video of the U.S. Lexington’s final resting place off the coast of Australia.

The images shared with the world show that anything that sits on the ocean floor two miles down – even 75 years later – eminently qualifies as a scene frozen in time. Even the decals on the planes look good.
