Videos from Egypt

"The Thistlegorm was a freighter assigned to transport supplies and war material to the British armed forced at the beginning of World War II. On October 7th, 1941 German planes bombed the plane and sent it to the bottom."

On March 20th at 10:23am Tobias and I descended onto the Thistlegorm for the first time.

Part 1


Part 2


This video was entirely created by Patrizia Rosa of Wreck Adventures. Paid for by Tobias, and Richard, and Theo and I. It doesn't have a copyright logo so I think (since we paid for it) it's okay to post here. She does great work but doesn't keep appointments.

Ciao Bela!

Nice! I feel like I got to go along!

You missed the current. That was... interesting.

Oh, and surfacing with a nearly empty tank. That was quite an experience too.

Ries said...

Well, the current is actually visible on the film: there was a diver with only one fin at the end...

Oh, that was me ;-)

I Dive At Night said...

Ah yes, but that's misleading since the closing shot of us crowded onto the line is from the 2nd dive. Now THAT dive had current!

I can't see the videos :( I will find a computer where i can :) You look goofy in that picture!

I do look goofy in that picture! Buzzing for a busy dive day and too much sun. ;-) The solution to the vid problem is already underway. Or double click the videos and go straight to their You Tube home.
