Malta's Bristol Blenheim Bomber is known to be the only one of its kind in the world and consequently this is a very interesting and historically important wreck.
The Bristol Blenheim Bomber was a RAF plane which was ditched in the sea when it had been damaged by a German aircraft. It is well preserved for a 66 year old wreck and lies at a depth of 42m. This deep she should only be dived by experienced divers. Remaining sights includes engines, wings, propellers and pilot seat; most parts are still there but may be unrecognizable. The rear of the fuselage was separated from the plane on impact with the water and now lies just a few meters away from the main wreckage. Fauna and flora include sponges, crabs, lobsters and tube worms. Don't expect to see many fish, as the small area of wreck does not make a good habitat for marine life. Finding this wreck is difficult and you will need to use a dive boat and local guide to get there. Please do not touch the wreck or remove anything from it. Plane wrecks are very rare and usually very badly damaged so it is very exciting to dive one in such a good state of preservation.
