The ship was on its way in to Kristiansand when she came under crossfire between the German cruiser Karlsruhe and the norwegian coastal fortress Odderøya, and the Norwegian forces thought this was a vessel that supported the German forces and started to shoot on the vessel with their 150 mm cannons.
#4 - Kjevik Airplane Wreck
There is usually a boy on the wreck, but not always :( Standing on the pier facing straigh out, the wreck lies between 12 and 10 and roughly 30-40 meters out from the pier. The plane is broken in four pieces, scattered in a small area. All the pieces are connected with lines so it's easy to swim between them. Ascent can be done by following the bottom countour towards land, it's sloping upwards. Drive through the roundabout past the fire station. Drive down to the right towards a big white brick building and down past it on the right. Park next to the big oak-tree, plenty of parking space. Kjevik Airplane Wreck is also known as Dornier 24.
