The Guardian sits upright on the bottom in 60 feet of water. The landing gear is retracted, the plane is intact except for the propeller, which lies 75 feet away in the sand, its blades bent backwards. The radome is buried in the sand and in unknown condition. The plane faces an easterly direction and is in very good condition with many features easily recognizable. The rudder and ailerons have broken away and there are metal electronics boxes visible in the aft cockpit. The starboard wing is off the bottom approximately 4 feet at the tip and the port wing lies in the sand.
