    The C-54 in Coz is a fun dive. The last two times I did it there was zero current. The time before that it was ripping. What ever happened to that huge lobster in it?

    I don't know of a plane wreck in Coz. I think you may mean the C-53, a minesweeper ship sunk there for divers. There used to be a small plane sunk by the international pier for a James Bond movie. But is has long disappeared thanks to the last hurricane.

    Your right! I read it as a PLAIN wreck, something easy. It is a sunken mine sweeper. There is a PLANE sunk in 30' at Athens Scuba Park. I think it is a Jet Star, a 4 engine, corporate jet. Josh said Fla, or the Caribbean and the scuba park is in Texas. Hope that helps.

    There are a few jets off the coast of Panama City... if you can find them. Have a tendency to get tossed around with the storms.

    In Coz there is a small plane located just south of the pier at the Barracuda hotel. The wings are laying next to it and it has been stripped. We found it on our check dive and saw a small ray under one wing.

    There used to be an airplane sunk between Del Mar Aquatics (across from the Casa Del Mar Hotel) and the cruise ship. I couldn't find it on my last trip. I was told that the last hurricane moved it.
