The Heinkel He 111 was designed in the early 1930s. Its purpose was to provide the Luftwaffe with a fast medium bomber. About 100 Heinkels 111, were delivered to the Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War, (1936-1939). Possibly this unit was shot on January 4, 1939, while bombarding the city of Tarragona on the offensive against Catalonia. The wreck was dragged by fishing boats, from 300 meters deep, in the early 80s. Today, lies at 32 meters depth, face down. Currently, only the central structure remains. The wreck has been pillaged by divers over these years.
