B-25(#1)


Local Name:

B-25(#1)

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:

Photo taken looking in the pilots window. The control quadrant is clearly visable.
A view from the front. Notice that the nose gear is down.
Here's a shot of the pilots window.
Another view of the nose of the plane form a slightly different angle.
Here we see Ms. Linda Fluke gong to examine the tail of the plane. You'll notice a large lump on the tail. This is a truck chassis that was dumped and landed right on the plane! There are at least 2 more truck chassis between here and the C46 which is very close by.
Another view of the tail of the plane and the truck chassis.
There is some nice coral growth hanging form the wing. I'd like to go back and take some more shots using the strobe to illuminate some of this coral. Another trip to Roi is needed!
Here's one of the other truck chassis that you'll find when swimming between the B-25 and the C46 which is nearby.
