Q:

Could you fly a plane underwater if it had all water proof features?

A:

Yes you could! IF it had engines built for underwater use, a plane could technically fly underwater.

 

Since air is a fluid, just like water, a plane could produce lift underwater as well, by using Bernoulli's principle. This would work for propellers as well. It would also experience more drag since water is denser than air.
