P-39q Airacobra is a fresh water dive site, located at Lake Huron, Port Huron, MI. The maximum depth is 26-30ft/8-9m. The average visibility is 26-30ft/8-9m.

Location needs to be updated, some say Algonac? which is in the river, not lake. Eyewitnesses to the crash which happened during gunnery practice when a fire broke out put it 4 miles north of the port.

This is a military grave site, do not retrieve any artifacts!

PORT HURON, MICHIGAN—The wreckage of a P-39 fighter plane piloted by one of the Tuskegee Airmen has been found at the bottom of Lake Huron, says The SFGate. On April 11, 1944, a plane piloted by 2nd Lt. Frank Moody crashed into the lake during a training mission. Although Moody’s body was found several months later, his aircraft was not spotted until recently by a helicopter pilot and his son, who alerted archaeologists from the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. A seven-person team dove the site and have documented the wreckage, which includes the engine, tail, gauge panel, wings, and a radio. The Tuskegee Airmen were a group of fighter and bomber pilots who fought in World War II and were the first African-American military aviators in the U.S. Armed Forces.
