Zero


Local Name:

Zero

Depth:

Approximately 40-50 feet.

Anchoring:

Ted Grosch as kind enough to provide some insight for diving this wreck. Ted informs me that there is a coral head about 300 feet due east of the wreck and that is perhaps a nice shallow place to anchor. I do not have coordinates for that coral head, but if/when I get back to Roi I'll try to get that coral head marked!

Notes:

This wreck lies inverted with the tail folded back on top of it which puts the tail in an upright orientation.

This is an interesting shot. We are looking at the tail of the plane. It is upright and folded back up upon the inverted body of the rest of the plane.

This anchor is actually on a coral head about 300 feet due east of the wreck. Ted Grosch suggests that the coral head may be a good place to anchor. Then, you swin aound until you find this anchor and head due west for about 300 feet to get to the zero. Thanks for the input Ted!

Ted says that you should find this wheel just before you get to the plane when swimming over from the nearby coral head.
