Crashed Curtiss C-46 aircraft near Norman's Cay, Exumas, Bahamas

While island hopping around the Bahamas in a Cessna C172 SP, I photographed this Curtiss C-46 which ditched on Nov 15, 1980. It crashed while it was on a drug smuggling mission for the Columbian Medellin drug cartel and lies in shallow water East of the Norman's Cay airport in the Exumas.
Lengthy internet research paid of!
