The history of the Spitfire wreck located off the coast of Gozo is linked to Operation Husky – the Allied invasion of Sicily (10 July 1943-17 August 1943).The aircraft is located upright on a sandy seabed at a depth of 70 metres.

★★★★ Beautiful wreck with lots of history. It’s worth diving at least once, even if just to say that you have dived on the legendary spitfire!
