We had some real problems with airplanes used as artificial reefs here in 

A major storm rolled through here a few years ago and ripped the planes to
shreds scattering pieces of metal over a wide area of reef.  The planes
were in fairly deep water (70' - 100' as I recall).

I would NOT recommend sinking planes as artificial reefs.
