Might be easier to lay flat on the beach, take a picture, apply some cool photoshop effects afterwards and then upload it
Waterproof cases tend to be very expensive, unless you have a really popular camera for which a large quantity of UW cases is produced. It's worthwhile checking out if you are a serious diver. But I think any water-to-air images will be indeed too much distorted for the purposes of this site.

Great idea, but the refraction of light and the movement of waves at the surface will make things rather difficult. I've tried it, not on aircraft in SXM but while diving in other places using this camera to get some cut in shots for my videos while surfacing. It doesn't work!

Being a diver, photographer and plane nut I've done it, but the results weren't that great. I used my Nikons V underwater camera which has limited lens capabilities. The max was 80 mm and the shots weren't that good. Good idea, but it didn't work out. Might be nice to try with a housing and D200 with a wide angle, but I haven't done that yet.
