Airbus A300 was sunk in the Aegean Sea off the coast of the southwestern resort town Kuşadası to serve as an artificial reef and attract tourists as part of a municipal project.

The airplane was brought on Saturday to the Güzelçamlı neighborhood of the town on five trucking rigs nearly 2 months after the dismantling process started in Istanbul on April 7.

The plane, which is reportedly the biggest plane ever used as a reef, cost 270,000 Turkish Lira, is 54 meters long and 44 meters wide.

Sounds intresting, and traveling turkey is cheap in the moment, as lots of european touriists hesitate travelling there due to the behaviour of theier president.
