An international team of divers has located the wreck of a B-24 Liberator bomber in Gander Lake in Canada.
The international team, featuring divers from Canada, the US, and France, conducted the survey before finally locating the wreck at a depth of nearly 50m/164ft.
The effort was part of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society’s “Great Island Expedition” program, which has taken divers to multiple locations around Newfoundland, exploring various wrecks.
The RCAF B-24 Liberator was piloted by Wing Commander J.M. Young and crashed shortly after takeoff on September 4th, 1943, due to an engine failure. After takeoff, the aircraft banked and began a gentle turn before eventually barrel rolling and crashing into Gander Lake.
All four crew members on the flight perished in the crash.
