Boeing 747 jumbo jet to open in Bahrain
DUBAI (Gulf News): The kingdom of Bahrain will be opening an eco-friendly underwater theme park that will be the largest in the world.
Spanning an area of more than 100,000 square meters, the eco-friendly destination will be the final resting place for a 70-meter decommissioned Boeing 747 aircraft, the largest plane ever to be submerged.
It will also be the home to a replica of a traditional Bahraini pearl merchant’s house, artificial coral reefs and other sculptures made from environmentally-friendly materials, providing a perfect backdrop for a diver’s playground.
The details of the project were announced on Saturday by the personal representative of His Majesty King Hamad, president of the Supreme Council for Environment, His Highness Shaikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
