This Japanese WII aircraft wreck was only discovered in late 2013. The Tabby was a DC-3 Dakota / 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.
The wreck lies inverted at a maximum depth of 45m. It shows considerable damage to the cockpit area, but divers can identify the pilot’s seats and control sticks. The fuselage section is intact, with the side-door removed. Inside the aircraft is a great deal of fish life, including a large buffer and grouper. The engines tore away from the aircraft on crashing – and the remains of one engine and the propeller can be located a few meters north of the wreck itself.
