DESCRIPTION OF THE DIVE

We start a dive in to blue by marker boy rope. As soon as you are 10 m deep you can already see outlining of the wreck. This is one of most unique wreck dives you will ever do. Plane is in great shape and looks like it just landed there.
The plain was one of three in squadron which attacked Sibenik. One was immediately shot down, one flew back to Italy and one was damaged and did emergency landing in Tratinska bay on island Zirje. On impact motor fell out and plane without motor slowly drifted south where it sank. After discovery of the wreck in 2014 motor was brought next to it.
