Rv Deep Quest

A creation of the Lockheed Missiles & Space Company, Deep Quest was designed for a number of research missions that were too far underwater for other submersibles to embark on. Its other notable dives include the discovery of a downed WWII-era F6F Hellcat fighter plane off the coast of San Diego in 1970. It sits on the grounds of the Naval Undersea Museum.
