Bell P39 Airacobra (Wreck)
This Bell P39Q Airacobra fighter plane was discovered in April 2011. Little is known about this mostly-intact wreck, but we believe it is one of two aircraft lost by the USAAF 68th Fighter Squadron during a raid on the Shortland Islands on 6 September, 1943. She lies in about 27m of water on a sandy bottom.
The wreck hosts schools of sweetlip, lionfish, coral trout and thousands of tiny baitfish and shrimp.
