Turkey Sinks Airbus to Create Artificial Reef
What else do you do when tourism takes a dive? After a series of terrorist attacks, Turkey is struggling to attract visitors - so it bought a jet for $100,000 and promptly sunk it in the Aegean Sea. Normally tourists don't like thinking about wrecked planes, but this one's different: It's meant to attract curious divers by creating a new reef for coral and sea life. Turkey's already sunk three small planes on similar missions, but this is the largest, and it should have a thriving underwater ecosystem within months.
