Time and again you may come across photographs of a plane-wreck that once existed for a period of time in the Lebanese southern city of Sidon.

The few retired planes were placed on the land nearby the sea where they were being prepared for submersion into their new forever home in the largest underwater park in the Middle East near the island of Al-Zira.

Their purpose was to help restore balance to marine life and enrich the coral reefs as well as raise environmental awareness and attract scuba diving tourism. They joined other military vehicles that also were submerged.

Photographers were able to capture what looked like an eerie airplane graveyard and the pictures still don’t fail to amaze.
