Pablo Escobar’s Plane Wreck, Bahamas
Pablo Escobar’s plane wreck is a favorite dive site in the Bahamas. Located in Norman’s Cay, the plane was used to smuggle cocaine and other goods during Escobar’s career as a drug lord..
The plane originally belonged to Pablo Escobar, who was a Colombian drug lord who was responsible for bringing drugs into America and Europe through his Medellin Cartel. The cartel operated out of Colombia from the late 1970s until 1993 when they were destroyed by government forces who had been trained by American DEA agents according to their “Plan Colombia” initiative which came into effect during that year’s presidential elections.
Divers can see the bodies of crew members who perished during the crash, including one that was found in the cockpit. There are also many sea creatures living on and around the wreckage, including eels, crabs, and other fish.
Although there are other wrecks in the area, as the air space of the region was relatively unpatrolled in those times, they are not as accessible as this one, which is located in a shallow area.
