The TBM Avenger is a WWII Navy torpedo bomber that was on a training mission in the early 50's along with 4 other planes. It hit another plane in the formation and they both crashed. The one that we dive went down on the front side of east Anacapa and had no loss of life. The other plane went down on the back side of Anacapa with loss of life and has never been found. The TBM sits in about 120' in sand about 40' from a nice reef and can have visibility of 20'-60'. After all the years you can still tell it's a plane. This excellent deep dive has attracted fish around it; 3 advanced dives (experienced divers with good buoyancy skills), possible currents and surface signal device recommended.
