From years ago I know that the tidal streams in that area are very strong and fierce in parts.
Last night I watched a programme from a few years ago where divers were going to dive the wreck of U480 in the channel more or less in the shipping channel. They only had a very short time to dive the wreck due to the tide and itís depth.
So depending the state of the tide when the aircraft hit the sea and being very light the wreckage could be spread for miles particularly if the engine/s dropped off on impact.
I wish them al the luck thatís possible but itíll a near miracle if they find much intact.
Itís being said that they have a search area of about 4 square miles, awful small.
I lost a friend back in 2001 off St Abbís Head. He had come up the shot line from 30mtrs to a Deco stop at about 9 mtrs with his buddy but never surfaced with buddy. Another down be team were in the water looking for him within 15-30 min. He was never found. It is thought that the tide took his body away as he sunk from 9 - 15 mtrs.
So far as I know his body has not been found, suit and dive set etc. But his skull in its hood was found in a fishermanís net a year or so later. The tidal flow at St. Abbís is not as strong as the channel.
Just thought that this would be a bit different from the fake news, martial law and other garbage being posted by you know who.
