Any Zeros or Spitfires wrecks here in Malaysian waters?

Post Number:#1  Postby irukandji » Tue Aug 11, 2009 11:28 pm

Recently a diver friend told me that there's a zero wreck here near Aur.

Wonder any forumers here know anything about it? I also get to know the only way to get there is by L.O.B. only, due to it's distance from the island.

I can't imagine.... diving underwater to see something that's supposed to be flying in the sky.  B-)

INTRESTING! Instant google search >>http://www.imagethief.com/articles/divi ... _2002.html

Although the article is from year 2002, but is the wreck still around? i bet the dive centre there do not provide these wreck dives unless on speacial request!

There are so many wrecks in Aur! Deep dive anyone??

Yes there is 1 Zero plane between Pulau Dayang n Pulau Aur.

The location have shifted & need to re-dive to find it, somebody tried to relocate it n it broke.

The Machine Gun is missing same as the propeller ...somebody took it out.

:D

Seems like there is a Zero indeed! And there're members here that know about it!
I learnt a lot about leisure diving here in MUW, but seems like it's more than that! Hidden treasures can be found here too!  :D

I wish I could dive that Zero site anytime soon. But too bad some people decided to take away the parts (but Syed K.A., if you have any idea where the parts is, please PM me.....hehe) . Sometimes I think the location of all these hidden treasures are better be kept secret.

Anyway, thanks so much for the info Syed K. A.!
