  727-9.jpg - What were they thinking?  Put light weight aluminum in the ocean?  We told them it would fall apart.  In just two years tropical storm Gordon generated seas in of only 15 feet and it broke the 727 in half. The nose, forward fuselage and wings remain on site while the tail section now sits in 110 feet of water 150 yards to the north east. Hum, figure aluminum airplane tails moving across the seabed damages any natural life along the way?  Well, it could have been worse, at least they anchored the airplane in place so it shows they were thinking about the possibility of movement.  However, even to this day people still sink airplanes usually without anchors!
