A decommissioned Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet has landed at the bottom of the Persian Gulf in Bahrain. The aircraft has thus become another diving attraction in the region and part of an emerging large-scale diving theme park.

What we reported in January has become a fact! The pre-prepared wreckage of a giant Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet passenger jet has been sunk to the seabed, becoming one of the main attractions of the emerging 100,000sq m diving theme park, due to open this summer and located just over 30km north of the Amwaj Islands.

The 70-metre-long aircraft wreck is to be the star and main attraction of the emerging park. The unit is located at a depth of 20 metres, so that it is accessible to all divers, regardless of their level of training, and so that it is visible to those snoorkeling on the surface.

In addition to the plane, the park will also feature other structures, such as a replica of a traditional pearl trader’s house from Bahrain (the principality is famous for its pearl fishing and trade), artificial coral reefs and various sculptures made from eco-friendly materials.

Everything is to be created and submerged to ensure the intensified flourishing of marine ecosystems and thus the development of dive tourism. It is also expected that in addition to attracting crowds of dive tourists, the site will be used by marine biologists, ecologists, scientists and students.

Interestingly, this is the second plane sunk in the Gulf region in the past month, with similar underwater attractions also awaiting divers in Jordan and Turkey.
