The plane, as an artificial reef, attracts now a multitude of corals and fishes. The stable superstructure of the plane resembles the same characteristics as a real coral reef. Inside the plane caverns and tunnels create protected areas, thus providing shelter for invertebrates and a multitude of marine organism.
Divers can enjoy the beautiful sight and the thrill of a little wreck dive while observing the creation of a new reef from a safe distance. The plane was soon covered with plenty small corals. Our divemasters occasionally report the presence of a turtle inside the cockpit,claiming the pilots seat.
