From ghost ships and deep ocean wrecks; to forgotten airplane locations; These are 9 Strange Abandoned Ships and Planes ! HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 9. Lady Be Good 8.Lyubov Orlova Lyubov Orlova was named after the famous Russian actress by the same name. Built in 1976 by the USSR she served as an expedition cruise ship, traveling around the Arctic and Antarctica often. In 2010, Lyubov Orlova was seized at St. John’s Port, Newfoundland because of accrued debts amounting to 251 thousand dollars. It stayed at that Port for the next 2 years, and when it was being towed to the Dominican Republic to be scrapped, something happened. Not even 1 day into the journey, the tow lines broke and the ship drifted away… Incredibly, she was captured again by a Transport Canada tug boat and dragged away to international waters…. Where she was cut loose. The last time Lyubov Orlova was spotted was in 2013, near the coast of Iceland and Ireland. By the way, I foolishly tried to find her on the marinetraffic website, but then I decided to check out some other ships, and as it turns out, for the LOW LOW LOW price of $157/year you can pick your favorite ship and never miss a beat !... or if for some reason you want to act like a pro and track up to 50 ships in real time, it will be $9,000 a year. What a steal haha. 7. Kee Bird 6.TSS Duke of Lancaster The TSS stands for Twin-Screw Steamship or Steamer… meaning it has two screw propellers compared to a Single Screw steamer… which has one. The More you know ! From 1955 to 1979 the ship provided services for travelers around the United Kingdom until it was forever beached near Mostyn, North Wales. At this point; The Duke of Lancaster was branded as the “Fun Ship” becoming a tourist attraction, but local politics made it almost impossible for the owners to operate the business. 5.US Navy Vought F4U Corsair airplane 4.MS World Discoverer The World Discoverer was a cruise ship that operated from 1975 to 2000. Visiting such great spots as Antarctica, Argentina, Chile, and the Falkland Islands, the ship was loved by many… but on April 30th, 2000, the ship hit a huge uncharted rock near the Solomon Islands. All passengers were transported to safety while the Captain stayed on the ship, steering it into Roderick Bay. At that point, the ship was considered a loss… and to this day, the World Discoverer remains at the same location. It has become somewhat of a tourist destination, being visited by other cruise ships in the area…. Which is kind of unsettling. 3. Atka B-24D Liberator 2.S.S. America After its illustrious 54 year career, the S.S. America was being transported from Greece to Thailand to become a five star docked hotel ship. The journey began on New Years Eve 1993 and a few days later, during a massive storm, the tow ship Neftegaz 67 lost control of the cruise liner. The S.S. America, now renamed the American Star found its way to the coast of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands and ran aground. Within 48 hours the harsh waves of the Atlantic Ocean split the ship in 2, she was declared a total loss and left to rot. At this point, there is almost nothing left from the ship, only a distant memory. 1.Murmansk The Cruiser Murmansk was built by the Soviet Union in 1955; and it served proudly until 1989. A few years later; the Russians decided to sell the cruiser to India for scrapping; during the move the ship ran aground near the Norwegian Coast. Shortly after; this haunting picture was taken, the ship looks like its in almost perfect condition; except for you know, being almost sideways...If only someone tugged on the big chain, it might have been an easy fix… or maybe thats not how this works. Anyway, No one wanted to deal with the clean up until 2009. Thats when everyone realized that due to the extremely harsh weather; the ship would have to be dismantled piece by piece. So thats what the Scandinavian contractor AF Decom did; in style. They built a dock around the ship and emptied out the water; this picture was taken during the process, you can see it that it REALLY was a team effort !

This explore I would say is the most interesting adventure iv'e been on to date. I am glad i get to share the experience with everyone because I won't forget it. This abandoned airport closed in 2001 and has sat there ever since. Seven aircraft were left in the corner of the runway abandoned as well. This spot had no graffiti and I believe that I may be one of the only people that have every explored it. I am definitely the first to video the entire experience. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Follow me on social media: Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/csrxn/ I do not destroy or vandalize any of the places I explore. I go to video and take pictures because it is what i love to do. I document these places before they are gone. I enjoy researching and learning the history behind the places I go.

as promised here is the UK scrappage scheme video!!! let me first start off by saying this was very hard to walk away from. Being a classic car enthusiast it was pretty heartbreaking to see all that potential Saturday to rot in eventually become complete scrap. Why are we still here? I have no idea it's something I would love to find out maybe the government knew these ones were going to be valuable in a few years or maybe they're just the last one's to go through the crusher, let me know what you think in the comments below. A car scappage scheme was introduced in Germany on 13 February 1999 and then in France and Italy. Following a record fall in car sales in the UK and associated redundancies accompanied by lobbying by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders on behalf of UK car manufacturers with support from the UK scheme was introduced in the 2009 United Kingdom Budget on 22 April 2009 by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Alistair Darling. The scheme was supported by Lord Mandelson, the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, and Geoff Hoon, the Secretary of State for Transport. In September 2009 a further £100m was made available to the scheme which was extended until the end of February 2010. The scheme had been due to run out of money during October and varies bodies including Engineering Employers' Federation, Uniteand the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders had lobbied for an extension which was announced by Lord Mandelson at the Labour party conference. On 5 February 2010 the scheme was extended by a month to run until the end of March 2010 or until the funds were exhausted. In the same month the government announced a £230m 'Plug-in car Grant' scheme to provide a £5,000 grant towards the purchase of plug-in electric cars - the scheme will start in January 2011. A separate scheme, 'Plugged-In Places' will provide some 11,000 charging points in selected cities over the next three years.

From CREEPY Train Stations, to some mega monuments; These are 13 Creepiest Abandoned Soviet Era Places ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 6. Mongolian Air Base Although it wasn’t official, Mongolia was basically a part of the Soviet union but they didn’t want to seem to seem imperialistic and put the Chinese on alert. With communist countries on both sides, it was heavily influenced by both powerful nations, but acted as a satellite nation to the USSR. In the 1970’s this airbase was added and was seen as a way to protect themselves in case there was any territorial disputes with China and here we see this statue with a fighter jet. These armored aircraft shelters, you see in this photo were made to protect expense aircraft from potential attacks and are designed with reinforced concrete. This random statue which is now close to a grazing pasture for cattle, has an inscription on it that states,”Glory to the Communist Party of Soviet Union. These large buildings housed the officers and their soldiers in this very isolated environment. 5. Abandoned Missile Factory This young Russian girl by the name of Lana Sator, risked getting in huge trouble to take these photos of an abandoned Russian Missile factory near Moscow. Somehow, she claims that she didn’t come across one security guard. The Russians were excellent rocket and missile producers and it’s believed that this factory belonged to liquid fuel rocket manufacturers that constructed liquid fuel rockets for spacecraft. Here we see the complex machinery that was needed to make these things that send people to the final frontier. It’s still unsure whether or not this building is in service or not but the fact that she was able to get in so easily would lead to believe it’s abandoned. Whatever the case, we really hope Lana didn’t go to Russian prison or in a work camp in Siberia. 4. Hungarian Train Station This Iconic Soviet Style locomotive was built in 1941 and saw use during the Soviet Era. The communist red star symbol is proudly displayed in the front of the train. An urban explorer by the name of Rebecca Bathory captured these images while doing some urban exploring in the Hungarian countryside. She claims it was quite a spooky experience coming here to take photos and had never seen such an epic train in all her life. 3. Kharkov Tank Repair Facility Do you need a place scrap up metal to build a tank with for the zombie apocalypse? This might be the place. Located in the Ukraine, this place was full of Soviet built T-80s, T-64s and T-72 tanks. Someone named Pasha broke into the abandoned facility to capture these great photos. Here we got tanks on tanks on tanks! There’s also tank engines, tank parts, wires, treads, and pretty much everything you can imagine that’s tank related is found here. It used to be place where a large amount of mechanics would repair tanks back to their former glory but as far as we can tell, the Ukraine isn’t doing anything with these tanks anymore. 2. Abandoned Places of Abkhazia The territory of Abkhazia, located in the country of Georgia, was one of the most disputed territories in the Soviet Union. They constructed intimidating buildings in order to impose their rule. Here in this photo we see a factory that was left over during the Soviet era, and is left rusting in present times. You can see on the inside it’s still covered in debris and nothing here can be repaired This former government building has been neglected and on the inside you can easily see the staircase and walls littered with dust. The scenery around this train station is quite remarkable but the building itself is in deplorable condition. Old government buildings and other places still have soviet era propaganda located within Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Possible the most well known place on this list, the Chernobyl exclusion zone has been shut off from the public due to radioactive contamination. So extreme tourists normally have to pay a hefty fee to the right people for a quick tour. The most populated city in this zone was the city of Pripyat just two miles for the power plant where the disaster took place. This city housed 50,000 people, including wealthy scientists and the ones who worked at the Chernobyl power plant. The bumper cars here were once a popular attraction for the families of the workers here. Very few dare to actually venture off to the power plant but Pripyat is safe but only for a few hours. Nature has began to thrive and reclaim this land once again. Some graffiti artists managed to break in here and painted this wall with a creepy looking baby. Very few were prepared for something like this and valuables were left behind like we see from this teddy bear with no owner. The hallways of these abandoned apartment buildings seem like the perfect setting for a horror film. This ferris wheel never saw any actual riders and was set to open a week before the meltdown.
