Egypt’s Thistlegorm wreck in a digital 3D tour

A team of archaeologists dove down to the Thistlegorm wreckage to create a 3D rendition of the site. Accompanied by a photogrammetry specialist, the group spent 13 hours trying to capture every angle of what has become one of the world’s most famous dive spots. This virtual tour really gets a full picture of the armed British freighter Thistlegorm, which sank somewhere along the Straits of Gubal near Suez while on its way to deliver supplies to Allied troops in Egypt in 1941 (watch here, runtime 1:26, 1:33 and 1:04)
