PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - A father and son say they've found the wreckage of a World War II-era fighter plane that crashed during a training exercise in Lake Huron 70 years ago.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports that David and Drew Losinski made the discovery of the P-39 fighter that crashed April 11, 1944, killing pilot 2nd Lt. Frank H. Moody of Los Angeles. They learned that Moody was among the Tuskegee Airmen, America's first black military pilots.

The divers say the wreckage includes the engine, tail and other parts.

An account of the crash from the Times Herald said Moody was among four pilots taking gunnery practice about three miles north of Port Huron. A witness said smoke was spotted from the tail of the plane before it crashed.
