apparently warplanes needn't suffer the humiliation of amusement-park-economics, as Warships must:

Interesting how it mentions the New Jersey in Camden. There is serious talk of moving the New Jersey from Camden to New York Harbor. Camden crime wise is just about as bad as it gets and people simply won't go there.

Smack on: I went w/ a Phil. friend who - after taking our time aboard ship - was uncharacteristically unnerved in his urgency to "get the hell outta there before dusk."

BTW: speaking of Phil., they're supposedly losing the Olympia (why?!?) to... Charleston, SC (can't complain for proximity, but Charleston's harbor is loaded with 'trophy' ships as it is ~ and the Olympia is 'inseparable' from downtown Phil.)

Frederick H. Hanselmann of Texas State University has returned to Panama, where he and a team of archaeologists have recovered artifacts from a seventeenth-century shipwreck thought to have belonged to Captain Henry Morgan. A sword, chests, wooden barrels, and cargo seals will all be examined to see if they offer any clues to the identification of the ship. In 1670, Morgan turned his fleet of ships toward Panama City, but they ran aground on the Lajas Reef. Morgan was still able to defeat Fort San Lorenzo and take Panama City. “Morgan was one of the most infamous privateers of all time, so for me, this is a chance to use archaeological research to bridge the gap between science and pop culture,” said Hanselmann:

The remains of five airmen lost in a plane crash in 1942 have been recovered by the American Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command from the waters of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec. Archaeologists from Parks Canada discovered the well-preserved PBY Catalina and personal artifacts in 2009. “When we actually saw that the fuselage was in one piece, we immediately stopped operations and contacted the American authorities,” said Marc-Andre Bernier, chief underwater archaeologist for Parks Canada. The remains will be identified by DNA analysis. Four members of the plane’s crew were rescued by fishermen from the nearby village of Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan before it sank:
