I can't see anything with relevance of the recent finding by Paul Allen ... in this section

Thanks for posting this here. As I said previously, those aircraft seem so well preserved. There are no Devastators left anywhere on dry land and here we see three of them.
 
With that in mind @Chazman do you think any will be recovered and restored?

In all her glory

The U.S. Navy aircraft carrier USS Lexington (CV-2) leaving San Diego, California (USA), on 14 October 1941. Planes parked on her flight deck include Brewster F2A-1 fighters (parked forward), Douglas SBD scout-bombers (amidships) and Douglas TBD-1 torpedo planes (aft). Note the false bow wave painted on her hull, forward, and badly chalked condition of the hull's camouflage paint.
 


USS Lexington underway circa 1936 near Diamond Head on Oahu Hawaii, showing her very wide funnel with its black top edge, under which the MG platform was situated. The 8in/55 twin mounts, and also the single 5in(127mm)/25s grouped in threes, are clearly visible.
