B-17E "Bessie the Jap Basher"
"Bessie the Jap Basher" is a B-17E Flying Fortress wrecked off the island of Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. According to the official report, "Loss of B-17E, Serial No. 41-2420, of 42nd Bombardment Squadron: On September 24, 1942, this B-17E, named Bessie Jap Basher was attacked by Japanese Zeros on a mission over the Shortland Islands.

Boris
Isn't he beautiful. Boris is his name and he is a very big boy; reputedly 400lb. When he eats he doesn't bite or chew, he just inhales. You don't get to be this big by waiting for food to drift by. You gotta work hard at it and Boris's job is as a deco stop entertainer at Wreck of the President Coolidge, Santo, Vanuatu.

Wananavu Group Snap
On tropical dive holidays you often have to dive as a group. At home, this wouldn't be good for me but in warm, clear water, it can even be kinda fun. Do these people look unhappy? Wananavu, Fiji.
