Does anyone know what ever happened to the illusion that John Gaughn was commissioned to
build for the USA exhibit at the 1975 Expo held on Okinawa? The illusion was a vertical cylinder
themed to be a diving chamber. A scuba diver appeared in the cylinder after a short movie about "The Sea We would Like to See.

I was stationed there at the time, and was one of the magicians chosen to perform during the EXPO.
We had a ton of fun making kids disappear in the chamber, and having parents wonder where they went.
After the EXPO ended, all of the exhibits were dismantled, and that area of the island became a ghost town.
