The Only Oahu Wreck Dive Not Intentionally Sunk
This fighter plane sank during a training exercise during WWII when the pilot ran out of gas and had to ditch the plane. It's a smaller wreck but still really cool, 97 feet to the sandy bottom. There are large schools of fish jammed into the semi-covered internal compartments, and a wing off to the side, with lots of sea life, including a feisty little black fish that will come and try to bite you if you get near his wing. There is apparently an eel that lives in the cockpit, but we didn't see him. We did see a baby eel living on the mooring though. You dive off of the Hawaii Kai boat harbor in south Oahu; we went with Aaron's Dive from Kailua and it was great!
