C-47 Dakota Airplane Wreck by Rico Besserdich
C-47 Dakota Airplane was intentionally sunken under the “Karaada Artificial Reefs Project” in order to create a new diving point for the divers. It was used as a debarkation plane by the Turkish Air Force until it was sunken on 1st of July 2008.
Equipped with two propellers, the plane by the effects of storms and currents glided down to its present depth. Meanwhile the broken propeller is being located between the cockpit and the shore.
It is not recommended diving inside of the plane which is 19.5 meters long and has 29 meters wing width, because of the instable structure and a lot of stuff dangling around.
