Dive Communist plane off the coast of Bulgaria
Made for former Bulgarian Communist ruler Todor Zhivkov, the plane's engines and interior were removed and the body of the aircraft is now 22 meters deep, making it the largest plane underwater in the world. The plane has been grounded since 1999 but once also carried Communist leaders such as Fidel Castro. Zhivkov's private yacht was previously purchased for cruises on the Danube River.
The new dive site is located near the resort town of St. Konstantin and Elena, just north of Bulgaria's "summer capital" of Varna. Read more about travel in Varna here.
