Ithaki or Ithaca is a Greek island located in the Ionian Sea, off the northeast coast of Kefalonia and to the west of continental Greece.
It is the second-smallest of seven main Ionian Islands, after Paxi. The capital, Vathy or Ithaki, has one of the world's largest natural harbours.
Ithaki covers an area of 120 square kilometres and has today a little more than three thousand inhabitants.
Modern Ithaki is generally identified with Homer's Ithaca, the home of Odysseus, whose delayed return to the island is one of the elements of the Odyssey's plot.
"The wreck of a Junkers 88 in southeastern Ithaki is well known. Locals say that the aircraft's crew was found dead in a life raft."
"The aircraft wreck was found at a depth of just 15 meters and efforts to salvage it after the war was over, resulted in its breaking into several pieces", Mr. George Lilas added.
"The tail of the aircraft is located at a depth of 36 metres, while the two engines of the Ju88 can be seen at depths ranging from 20 to 26 meters." says Mr. George Lilas.
"The cockpit, some people claim, is at a depth of 80 meters but I have not dived myself to check it." Mr. George Lilas says.
Research, as to the exact identity of this WW2 Wreck in Greece, is ongoing.
