The Flying Enterprise is lying in 84 meters of water and the dives were done using trimix. During the 60 minute decompression 2 different nitrox mixtures were utilized. No incidents occured during the dives and all went as planned. It was only the 3-4 meter waves that made it a bit difficult for the diving team. Conditions were really marginal.
As always safety was of utmost importance. During the staged decompression the trimix divers were assisted by a safety diver. On board the diving vessel a complete safety setup was established in case needed. In all we went out prepared in case a situation should occur but fortunately none of these precautions were needed during the expedition.
The expedition was filled with toys and gadgets. Besides the diving equipment that was to be used for the trimix dives we also brought in a lot of video equipment in order to do the documentation of the wreck. A ROV was also brought in to do an inspection of the wreck.
