This dive site is located near the Fourmigue du Lavandou and is recommended for advanced divers only. The site is a plane wreck that sank in 1957 when it fell from an aircraft carrier. At the wreck site it is still possible to find guns, the engine stuck in the tail, wings and the propeller at the rear of the fuselage. One of the particularities of this wreck is that it is possible to observe the landing gear that retracts completely into the fuselage.
