Ballard, also found the Titanic. He never revealed the location though.
Right, as usual!
The Swordfish was such a fragile looking, held together with bailing wire kinda thing that he British pilots niknamed it the "Stringbag"
The reason why it was succesful flying into the great volume of AAA fire Bismarp was putting up was the fact that it was so slow! I don't think the Germans scored one hit on any of the Swordfish who were flying low & slow right into Bismark' gun. Bismark had all it's AAA guns set to "lead" attacking aircraft at the higher speeds of the day & thus all the fire was wasted ahead of the aircraft. Must have taken some guts to fly into Bismark's guns sitting in a "Stringbag" & feeling like you were hanging there like a paper target! Not for me thanks.
