    Sorry I don't know much about that one, but I have a buddy of mine who tells me there is a old Lancaster Bomber in Simcoe as well. I am trying to get the info on that one as well. Be sure to let us know what you find out!

    If you find info about a Lancaster, let me know. That would be pretty sweet to dive on.

    Basically It's a boat dive, my buddy is going to take us out and show us the location, just of shore but a bit too far for surface swim. He hasn't been there for a few years, and we don't know the condition of the plane itself. As soon we get it worked out i'll let you know what the plan is.

    Thanks....hopefull you have a good dive on it and it is in good condition. Hopefully you can log the GPS coordinates and post them so it can be enjoyed by many. I am always looking for a new site because I have logged a lot of dives at the "local" ones. Necessity of a boat may throw a wrench into it for me but I will always find a way.

    I was quoted around the 80- 90 foot range. It was about 5 years ago he did the dive and he was a begginer then and hadn't been back since. I myself don't know much about the lake still in the research part, howevere I do know Big bay we hit 85 feet. The site I have been told is two beaches west of Big Bay Point. Again once we get close to charter times for the lake I will let you know and we can head out and see what we get.

    8 of us are hading to the Tiller Wreck Tomorrow for a dive, should be a blast.

    Let me know when you can get out Jimmer for a dive.

    I wont be at the Tiller dive, but I'll likely be at the noon dive at the dive park. Are you going to that one as well?

    For years the story of the Lancaster plane wreck under lake Simcoe has been told and I never heard of it actually being found it would of made the national papers and I'm sure would of been removed for historical reasons as there are only a hand full of those wonderful planes actually flying and left in the world. They were made in Malton Ontario for the British air force back in the 40's. The plane I was talking about is a small Cessna plane I dove on about 12 years back and there was a small trimaran boat just beside it.
