The wreck of an American bomber lies at a depth of 20mts. The bomber fell and sank in 1943 with 11 people on board and only 5 were saved.
We can see the wings practically whole in an inverted position, we can also see the motors. However, the main part of the plane does not exist.
Around it, we can find the 2 propellers, one of the vertical rudders and a part of one of the motors.
This wreck is also a shelter to some species as for example, Toadfish, Pouts, Octopus, Spinous spider crab, Shrimps, European lobster.
