The Bristol Beaufighter WW2 Aeroplane

Wreck Dive, St. Julians, Malta

The Bristol Beaufighter was built in England and taken into service in 1940. It was a twin-engine 2-3 seater long-range fighter, strike, and torpedo aircraft. On the 17th March 1943, Beaufighter “N” failed in the air just after take-off and her pilot managed to ditch her in the sea. Both pilot and co-pilot were uninjured. She now lies upside down on a sand bed at 38m.

The Propellers

The propellers are a lovely feature to check out on the wreck. You can also find morey eels hiding in these areas on the wreck.

Experience Needed

You must be certified to dive to a depth of 40 meters to dive this site. We would also recommend being a Nitrox Diver.
