A-7 Plane Wreckage found after 37 Years
On a cold winter day in December of 1974, two A7-C jets collide at 15,000 feet offshore St. Augustine. One of the A7′s quickly becomes uncontrollable and falls out of the sky into the ocean below. The other aircraft is able to limp its way home.
Nearly 40 years later, the TISIRI team finds themselves investigating aircraft wreckage off the Coast of St. Augustine Florida. Scuba diving searches of one wreckage site has revealed what appears to be large aluminum metal structures and large tires. Structures that are often associated with military aircraft.
TISIRI divers have made several dives to the wreckage looking for clues to help lead to the identification of the aircraft. See pictures captured of the wreckage at TISIRI’s website here
