In 1999 I was lucky enough to dive my first airplane wreck underwater. Luckily, it was one of the most fascinating airplanes of the Second World War, a 4-engines B17 flying fortress, which is extremely well preserved. This dive and in particular the beautiful wreck, hooked me for many year to come to the worldwide exploration of underwater aviation.In the following 20 odd years, i was lucky to dive and explore hundreds os wrecks with a few of them being airplane wrecks.
As time progressed, I started to develop a special interest and a growing passion to photographing and documenting these delicate wrecks underwater in warm, cold, dark or extremely challenging locations around the globe. The stories of these wrecks are not always well known. Some are still a mystery. Others tell the stories of heroic air combats or defence of populations or armies in dark days of wars.
Whether the cause of the crash is an accident or shooting, diving on these silent beasts, keeps your imagination at the limit. The respect and admiration to the brave pilots cannot be described in simple words. Enjoy the my growing collection of aircraft wrecks and please get in touch if you want more information.
