C46


Local Name:

C46

Depth:

Unknown.

Anchoring:

As you'll find to be true for most of the Roi-Namur wrecks, I do not have enough experience diving the Roi-Namur wrecks to provide any hints here. I hope to consult with the local divers and provide better information shortly.

Notes:

I believe the information provided here to be reasonably accurate, but I have been unable to personally confirm this data as yet. I hope to have more information on the Roi-Namur wrecks soon. If any Roi-Namur divers would like to provide any comments or subit any photos, your help would be greatly appreciated!

Photos:

Interrior shot of the C-46 cockpit. Notice that the co-pilot's window is clear and the pilot's window is overgrown with growth.
A view of the plane from the front. Notice that the wings and tail have been removed.
Here's Hal Parker getting some photos!
Hal Parker and Linda Fluke on the safety stop. Linda has a digital camera and reviews her photos while hanging out at 15 feet. I have to wait a month for my slides to be developed!
Here's a view looking through the door in the cockpit and into the cargo hold towards the tail of the plane.
Looking out through the cargo door on the port side of the plane towards the tail.
A shot from above.
This shot shows some nice soft coral growing on the cargo door that is on the port side of the plane towards the tail.
Just a slightly differnet view of the soft coral on the cargo door.
Another view from above. You can see the cargo door and the tail where the vertical stabilizer has been removed.
Looking that the nose of the plane we see the co-pilot's windscreen is cleared off. I wonder who scrapped this clenan and why.
Here's one of the truck chassis that you'll find between here and the B-25.
