Sunken World War II Plane Turned Into Scuba Playground | All about water, the oceans, environmental issues | Scoop.it

Just off the coast of Kas, Turkey, a World War II plane sits over 65 feet below the surface, hosting a party of men in scuba gear instead of soldiers strapped into parachutes.

The DC-3 Dakota plane was sunk on purpose, specifically to become an attraction for scuba divers and historians from around the world. Where it once carried paratroopers, the fuselage is now home to schools of fish, shrimp, and even barracudas.
