Andrew Hamilton plans to visit Kwajalein and Majuro later this year to see the aircraft graveyard and other Japanese merchant shipwrecks.

I have heard a little about the plane graveyard and seen a few photos and have no idea how many planes were dumped from the aircraft carrier but when I was in Bikini Atoll I spoke to an American there and he said there were more than fifty aircraft if you were prepared to look as they are spread about” Andrew Hamilton said toWW2 Wrecks
