This circa 1943 U.S. Army Air Force photo from the Kelly Family Research Project shows the "Heaven Can Wait" B-24 bomber, location unknown, in which Lt. Thomas Kelly died when it was shot down in Hansa Bay in what is now Papua New Guinea during World War II. When Tom Kelly's relatives got word that his bomber had been found, a wave of exhilaration mixed with grief washed over family members. Although relatives who never met Kelly had pieced much of his life story together over the years, they never knew what happened when his plane was shot down off the coast of Papua New Guinea in 1944. They got their answer recently when the group Project Recover found the B-24 bomber under 213 feet of water. (U.S. Army Air Force/Kelly Family Research Project via AP)
