Fighter Jets Used As Artificial Reefs

by | Jul 1, 2014 | Conservation, Corals, Reef | 0 comments

Two fighter jets were sunk in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Sarasota, Florida. The retired F 101 Voodoo fighter jets were previously on display at a local college. The jets are intended to attract newer divers and fisherman, to create an interesting but not too challenging dive. Just three miles off the coast, the site is not too deep, creating a perfect dive for newer divers. Or any divers who are interesting in checking out the jets.jet
