A330 in Kusadasi Bay

I hope this will be of interest to some. I took the photos from my house as the plane was being towed to the position where it was sunk which is only about a half mile from my home marina.

And as a diver if you feel tired you can have a seat to breathe a bit

A300 not A330.

In Cozumel, there is an airplane sunk just offshore of the beach for divers (or used to be). It was put there to shoot a movie. Originally they were going to pull it up, but the hotel owner paid for them to leave it there.

My bad. Thanks.
Here's a video posted by a local Dive Center which shows it being transported by road and being reassembled before being towed around 10 miles to the location where it was sunk.

I'd like a 747 or maybe a Concorde reef please.
Actually a C130 would be fun as well.

Can't help there but there is an ex Turkish Air Force Dakota DC3 a bit further South in Kaş if that's any help.
