The Shipwreck of M/V Kaptan Ismail Hakki


AirVuz contributor and drone pilot Drone Solutions Greece shot this excellent aerial video of one of the more well known of Greece's many shipwrecks.  In 1978, the Captan Ismail Hakki sank in shallow waters near Lakonia, in the southeastern part of the Peloponnese region of southern Greece.  The rusting hulk lies in 12 meters (about 40 ft.) of water just 100 meters (about 330 ft.) offshore.  For reasons which were never definitively determined, the small (30 meter, 100 ft) ship sank carrying a supply of iron ore.
