Hutton Pulitzer Reports: German WW II U-boat Discovered Off Azores #JovanHuttonPulitzer #TheHistoryHereitc

Experts say they have discovered a German World War II U-boat in the Atlantic Ocean off the Azores.

The wreck of U-581 was found at a depth of 2,953 feet near the south coast of Pico island by a submersible operated by the Rebikoff-Niggeler Foundation. The sub sank in 1942 after it was attacked by the British destroyer HMS Westcott.

A non-profit organization devoted to marine science, the Rebikoff-Niggeler Foundation announced the discovery on Feb. 3 and released stunning images of the coral-encrusted sub.  Experts verified the sub’s location on Sep. 13 2016 after a search of several months, it said.
