Diving in the Philippines for a Japanese Tabby Aircraft Crashed During WW2

We’re looking for a Japanese Tabby Aircraft version of the Douglas DC3.

It’s never a good sign when you’re looking for an aircraft underwater.

We found it upside down on the bottom. You can see the landing gear with the tire still intact.

I estimate this was shot down in around 1944 or 1945. You will see the landing gear retracted, so you know it was en-route some where, it wasn’t coming in for a landing when it was shot down.

As I go up the fuselage you will see the impact was so dramatic that it almost ripped the cockpit almost completely off the airplane. We can see the pilot seat, the controls int eh cockpit and all kinds of debris around it.

There are lots of fish life around this wreck, they’re definitely enjoying it.

The engines must have been ripped off probably on impact. You can see parts of them laying near by on the ocean floor.

This is a passenger and cargo airplane. Nothing much left int here now except a bunch of fish and what looks to be some rice wine bottles.

You can see the tail wheel also in a retracted position at the back of the plain with he rubber still hanging off of it.

This is an interesting wreck to see.
