Dive Xtras DPVs Made History Again!

Dive Xtras DPVs Made History Again!

When the divers and crew behind History's new series "The Bermuda Triangle: Into Cursed Waters" first dipped below the surface in search of a lost WWII aircraft, they had no idea they were about to make history - in more ways than one. What they discovered was not a plane, but in fact, a section of the destroyed Space Shuttle Challenger... the first recovered piece in over 25 years.

Divers Mike Barnette and Jimmy Gadomski made the discovery, aided by a Piranha DPV. The video below shows the first few moments of the team's discovery, as well as some clever scooter skills from Jimmy Gadomski - who used his Piranha as a dust blower to unearth the Challenger segment!

Check out the show's trailer below and maybe watch the show for yourself? Don't forget to let us know what you think!
