    -304m Ccr Dive Cyprus

    anybody knows any details?

    QUOTED IN WIKIPEDA;

    "In 2007 Erdogan Bayburt, a former Turkish Navy diver, dived to a depth of 998 feet (304 m) off the coast of Cyprus, but that dive has not been independently verified. He used a closed-circuit rebreather. His dive was aborted due to equipment failure. It was a Turkish Navy experimental dive."

    The Dive was aborted at 304 msw or he has planned a 304 msw dive and aborted it at 20 msw?

    Just curious!

    The Turkish Navy uses Hammerhead-powered Viper rebreathers.

    Wonder what the equipment failure was? I would want to fill my Hammerhead with some parafin before going that deep

    All I can say is, it was a resque mission for submarine stucked at 1000 feet depth of Mediterranian sea with 114 sailors on board. Was no time for ROV to attached the hooks. One man's life against 114. It was not pleasure nor record attemp dive, purely was emergency. He was called 2 years after went to retirement , before his 998 feet CCR dive, he has dived 1025 feet with open circut scuba,but never published. He still dives at age of 49, who am I ?
    I was his safety diver. Some times, some subjects must be not talk about it.

    Anyone can post anything to Wikipedia - don't believe what you read there without the facts, and don't believe posts from anonymous "safety divers". If so many people were rescued 7 years ago, perhaps by now one of them is retired and can speak up about it or perhaps someone at the scene can provide some more info.
