Twin Engine Wreck Site Investigation

The TISIRI Team encountered two 6 cylinder Lycoming aircraft engines offshore St. Augustine. After information was collected from several dive surveys of the wreckage, it is assumed this aircraft is what remains of a Piper Aztec. The propeller manufacturer dates the props were built in the 1960's. At the moment we are searching for records of Piper Aztec incidents with the NTSB. Cick the bottons below to see images from our surveys.
