Bermuda’s largest shipwreck, the 499-foot long Cristobal Colon, a transatlantic luxury liner that crashed into the reef in 1936. During the Second World War, US Navy fighter pilots conducted training missions using the Cristobal for target practice, blowing most of her to pieces and finally breaking her back across the reef to which she had succumbed and splitting her in two.
