The plane used by Bulgaria’s former communist dictator, Todor Zhivkov,
was sunk in the waters of the Black Sea last Wednesday.
The craft is now 23 meters under the water surface about 2-3 miles away from the St.St. Konstantin and Elena resort
near the Black Sea capital Varna.
With time, the 11-meter tall and 48-meter long plane will become an artificial reef and refuge for many sea species.
Its remains will turn both into tourist attraction and practice diving ground.
The access to the plane will be free of charge.
