GoPro videos never cease to amaze us and this latest one looks like it could have come straight from National Geographic. In reality, though, this video was created when a GoPro 3+ Black Edition owner strapped the camera to a remote-controlled plane that he tried to fly over the ocean, only to see it crash into the water.

While this was obviously very bad for the plane, it nonetheless made an incredibly compelling video. While underwater, the GoPro managed to capture great footage of schools of fish, a shark and giant sea turtles. This ill-fated GoPro plane flight took place on the coast of western Australia, which explains why the water looks so crystal clear.
