The US Navy broke the depth record when lifting an aircraft from the ocean floor. Yesterday, March 23, the press service of the Naval Systems Command (NAVSEA) reported that the MH-60S Seahawk helicopter, which crashed last year, was able to lift from a depth of more than 5,800 m.

The special vessel Supervisor of Salvage and Diving (SUPSALV) managed to lift the helicopter from a depth of 19,075 feet (5,814 m). The US Navy points out that this is a record for lifting large objects from such depths, which exceeded the previous SUPSALV figure when the plane was lifted from the bottom.
