The Maltese motor tanker Harmony I was en route
Kharg Island to Sirri Island,
loaded with a cargo of gasoil and kerosene,
when she was attacked by an Iraqi warplane off Bushire on May 8, 1986.
The exploding Exocet missile caused an immediate fire
but none of the crew wer injured.
After being abandoned by her crew,
she was taken in tow for Sirri two days later but,
still blazing furiously, she sank west of Lavan Island
in lat 26.52N, long 51.01E on May 13.
