Check out www.historicaviation.com (http://www.historicaviation.com)
I get their magazine which is amazing, and I remember seeing some high quality posters of wrecks in the Pacific (primarily underwater) and I belive they're quite reasonabley priced around 20-30 U.S. dollars

I saw a special on TV a good while back where Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) went exploring several pacific WW2 battle areas. It wasn't an animal show. They had a bunch of footage of him diving on some wrecks and climbing into caves with a bunch of war relics. At one point he was swimming into the cockpit of a zero.

Regardless of what you think of Steve Irwin, it was a pretty good show. He walked the islands and described the action there. Sprinkled bits of history in. Sounded like he had some genuine interest in the subject. Apparently, he had some relatives that fought.

Somewhere, I got the idea that it was going to be a series. Does anyone know of this?
