Million Dollar Point

Million Dollar Point


Million Dollar Point is an area in the Pacific where the U.S. army dumped all its equipment after WW2 because it was cheaper than bringing it home.

It's called Million Dollar Point - an apt title for a treasure trove of US military equipment left dumped at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean after the Second World War.

The wreckage includes bulldozers, jeeps, trucks, semi-trailers, forklifts, tractors, clothing, corrugated iron, and even Coke bottles.

The US failed to come to a deal with locals to buy the equipment and it was deemed cheaper to dump in the ocean rather than transport it back to the US.
