22 September 1981: Calayan Island, Philippines - The foundered frigate BRP Datu Kalantiaw (PS-76, ex-USS Booth) on 22 September 1981. She was driven aground during Typhoon Clara on 21 September 1981 on the rocky northern shore of Calayan Island, in the northern Philippines. 79 of the crew of 97 died.
Hmmm, did the air bags go off and the sailors were not wearing their seatbelts?
Is this not the site of the initial wreck? If it is how could so many sailors lose their lives?
Abandoning ship further offshore during a typhoon would be my guess.
In retrospect riding it out would have been a marginally better decision.
Somethings off on that photo. The scale maybe.
Lying on its side means its sleeping, right?
