This aircraft, officially named the Mitsubishi F1M Bi-Plane, is a Japanese aircraft used as an observation plane during World War II. Its nickname Pete was given to it by the allied forces that eventually brought her down. The plane lies at a depth of 30 meters completely in an up-right position. Many parts can still be seen because the somewhat fragile plane has been preserved excellent. You can see the cockpit with some instruments and controls still in place. As well as the wings, engines, propellers and tail fins. An interesting item to find is the original Japanese emblem of the rising sun. The sand surrounding the plane is colored black because of the many volcanoes that have erupted in this area.
The wreck is covered with coral and many fish are attracted by it. Marine life that can be seen are moray eels, rays, triggerfish and other common fish. It has splendid growth of hard coral, soft corals and sponges, but the marine and coral life shouldn't be the reason to dive this airplane wreck.
