Consolidated PB4Y-2 BuNo 59695 3D Model
The PB4Y is a four engine bomber that crashed on August 26, 1956 and came to rest at the bottom of Lake Washington. The plane was on a training flight, and the pilot did not configure the bomber correctly for the takeoff.
Fortunately, there were no fatalities. The official accident report describes a semi-successful recovery attempt. US Navy personell were able to bring the plane to the surface; however, portions of the planes structure gave way and caused it to sink a second time. Today, it rests in about 150ft/45m of water off of Magnusson Park (formerly NAS Seattle).
This wreck was captured by a team of GUE Seattle divers over the course of six diving days. 100% of the costs of the project were covered by the team.
Lighting and support divers: Alex Adolfi, Bert Brezicha, Itai Rosenberger, Mike Bearda, and Rebekah Marshall
