On December 17th 1944 this B-24 Liberator Bomber was on a mission over the Czech Republic when it was attacked by a German division. The bomber had one engine damaged and the hydraulic system. Additionally it was hit in the wings and hull. There was no chance of returning to the base in Italy so they aimed for an emergency landing on the island of Vis, but before it could make it the B-24 went down in the Adriatic sea. Seven crew members survived the crash and were rescued by fishermen but three went missing. In 2017 their remains were finally identified, recovered and then sent home. The aircraft is upsidown and sits on a plateau in about 135 feet of water and the tail section is a few hundred feet away in 170ft of water.
This heavy bomber had a 108 foot wingspan, and a 66 foot long fuselage. It was armed with ten 12.7 calibre M2 Browning machine guns.
It took me 40 minutes of bottom time to scan the site and 40 minutes of decompression. The model is 1828 images.
