    ‪Turkey‬ sinks an Airbus A300 to create an artificial diving reef

    Now THAT'S a seaplane! ‪Turkey‬ sinks an Airbus A300 to create an artificial diving reef and help tourism take off
    Turkish authorities have sunk an A300 Airbus off a resort on the Aegean Sea with the aim of boosting diving tourism in the region.
    The giant plane was put to the bottom of the sea on Saturday afternoon near Kusadasi in Aydin province.
    The aim of sinking the aircraft - which has a wingspan of 144 feet and a length of 177 feet - is to promote artificial reef diving, which is hugely popular with experienced divers.
    Once sunk, the plane should become a magnet for underwater flora and fauna.
    The 36-year-old aircraft had been bought by Aydin municipality from a private aviation firm for 270,000 Turkish lira, roughly around 65,000, the Dogan and Cihan news agencies reported.
