Hercules plane C-130

Hercules is a magnificent sight that is nearly always visible from the surface. The great visibility of the Red Sea allows the descent onto the wreck, and the site is subject to just the slightest of currents. The inside of the airplane, as well as its outside aspect, is utterly delightful. Entering the wreck is simple and safe.
