SCUBA Dive on the
Beechcraft 18 Airplane Wreck

Excellent surface conditions and the visibility on the Beechcraft Airplane Wreck was very good.

The Beechcraft 18 Airplane Wreck was sunk during the early 1990's outside the Waianae Boat Harbor sitting upright on its landing gear at 95 feet.  During Sep 1992, Hurricane Iniki dragged the wreck further out to sea.  The wreck was eventually found and brought back to its originally resting spot  very damaged and upside down.  Despite the damage, the  Beechcraft Airplane Wreck remains a magnet for marine life and a great dive site for photography.

Photographic equipment  and film used during this dive:
Nikonos III w/15mm Lens   Dual Strobes
Film:  Kodachrome 64
