This American SBD-4 Douglas (Dauntless) dive-bomber was shot down in June 1943 during a raid and is now a very popular dive site. Hit by anti-aircraft fire, pilot Jim Dougherty attempted to fly back to the Russell Islands. Unfortunately, the aircraft and Jim made a crash landing in Rendova Harbour. In 1995, Jim returned to Munda to visit and dive his old plane on the anniversary of the day he was shot down.
