Great photo. Love the way the water just covers the wings enough that you can still see them. As it disappears

A visitor from - posted Sun June 26, 2011:
The picture is awesome

A visitor from - posted Fri June 24, 2011:
That beauty belongs in the air, not at the bottom of the black sea!!

A visitor from - posted Sat June 18, 2011:
Cool!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue June 14, 2011:
Great pic! As a diver, I definitely see a point to sinking an aircraft! Wreck dives are great, especially ones where you can enter the wreck. This will be an aircraft you can enter - how cool is that? 22 meters is also a very good depth, giving you a reasonable amount of bottom time in which you can explore the aircraft. I think I need to go to Bulgaria for one of my next holidays! :-)

Super

A visitor from United States posted Sat June 4, 2011:
There is a point in putting a plane in the sea, refer to the 1st. comment by TriJetsFan. Many old ships have been scuttled to create artificial reefs and diving spots, so why not a plane?!

Regards from SoCal.

What a picture!

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 3, 2011:
Great pic..but i don't see the point in putting a plane in the black sea.

A visitor from Spain posted Fri June 3, 2011:
Wow What a picture! Rarely seen on airliners.
Good job! Regards from Spain!

A visitor from - posted Fri June 3, 2011:
Great shot. Looks like they left the cabin doors off. Wonder if they blocked them some other way or just left them off so divers can get inside..

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 3, 2011:
It is photographically well composed and exposed, sharp and shows the aircraft in good detail and during a key moment. The explanation is detailed, accurate and rather curious, too.

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri June 3, 2011:
What if they install some sort of submarine engine on this thing and "fly" it under the sea? Just dreaming awake here...

A visitor from France posted Fri June 3, 2011:
Great pict ! Shot from helicopter ?

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 3, 2011:
What a rare and intriguing sight. Lovely angle as well. 5 stars!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri June 3, 2011:
Surely will make an interesting diving spot. Let's hope those divers won't know anything about aircraft so that they don't get mystified by the shape of its tail ;-)

A visitor from Bulgaria posted Fri June 3, 2011:
No Bravo Todor Jivkov, Bravo Ogi!

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 2, 2011:
Stellar, truly five-star picture of a strange, irrational and inexplicable sinking that I never understood (I've known about this for a while)

A visitor from - posted Thu June 2, 2011:
Great job!

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 2, 2011:
Definitely a better fate than meeting the scrap man! It will make a good artificial reef and interesting diving spot for centuries.
