Video shot of a technical sidemount dive upon the newly discovered (2012) wreck of a Japanese WWII Showa/Makajima L2D "Tabby" transport aircraft. The Tabby was a DC-3 Dakaota/C-47 Skytrain variant produced under license in Japan pre-war and used extensively during the war.
During the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, the Japanese operated Tabby aircraft from numerous locations, including Clark Field near to Subic Bay. There were war-time reports of at least 9 Japanese aircraft being shot-down over Subic.
This wreck was originally discovered by staff from Boardwalk Dive Center, but at 45m/150ft depth, few visiting divers have had the ability to see it. Aircraft identification resulted from this video (and stills taken on the same dives). The identifying dive team were, Andy Davis, Brian Ferguson and Tim Mathieson.
