Talking to the locals recently revealed that the Sunderland is in about 20 metres of water in a very busy area. The lifeboat mooring is nearby and the actual lifeboat often swings over the wreck. Local fishing has been blamed for the condition of the aircraft, but this is only based on sonar scans. The sonar reportedly shows about 25% of the aircraft above the mud, but we are unsure exactly which section this is. Visibility and currents, as well as shipping, make this a not very attractive dive.

Could it be PP118, ML883 or G-AGKY ?
