Wreck description:

To the diving site it is possible to get only by boat. There is a wreck of the plane, which is located on the sandy bottom in very good condition. The bow of aircraft was crushed by the fall, and the plane lies on the lower part of hull. Inside the plane it is possible to see seats, lever and control panel. Everything preserved in its place. The part of wreck is covered by algae and marine moss. Engines from the propeller entirely are covered by algae and moss. B17 lies at 72 meters and this is diving in depths. This site requires very high diving qualifications, due to frequent weather conditions that don’t permit the diving boat to sail out above the wreck of plane.
