Default Finders keepers ?

Say you had the resources to do it , You knew their locations , and it was in international waters . What would prevent you from salvaging a crashed b17 , a deck gun from a naval ship ect ect , weather it be jap , us , german . I vaguely remember a show about a ww2 bomber that had landed in the arctic and found many decades later , they got it ready to fly out and while running the 4 new engines one caught fire and destroyed the plane .
Anyone know the red around salvages like this ? All this being said with respect to those who went down with said vessel .
For me I would give anything to have a p-38 or b17 or any other ww2 plane , no matter the condition , hell just a part of of them would make me happy
Im sure the gov would have an issue with salvaging a ma deuce from its watery grave

Most nations claim sovereignty over military aircraft or vessels lost while in service. You cannot legally claim salvage rights to them.

Yeah, what Jpyle said.

But, there are civilian treasures out there to be found.

I read somewhere that there are some cities here in the US that are having problems with abandoned boats and these cities are not only letting contractors go out and collect these boats (some of which are yacht class), but they are being paid for it and being allowed to keep them.

How about a boat that was full of guns that accidently sank during an FTF outing?

Sorry guys, I couldn't resist.

PS- besides the effects of being immersed in seawater for 60 years on a Ma Deuce, salvage falls under marine law, and the law of Treasure Trove. If some insurance company paid the losses on a freighter full of Merkel shotguns that went down, THEY own the cargo. And they DO fight like the very dickens.

Salvager that located one of the Spanish galleons and salvgaed the gold has been tied up with govt claims on the gold since day 1.

Sounds like one heck of a swim to get to that wreck.

What caused it to sink?

It's a shame to see a boat go down.

It's even a bigger shame to see all those guns go down with it.
