From deep sea wreck discoveries; to mysterious aircraft in Colombia. These are 10 strange abandoned airplanes HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 10. Samara Aerodrome | Russia We kick off this list with the incredible collection of aircraft at the Samara Aerodrome in Russia ! We have some helicopters in the mix as well Probably the most exciting find is this Tupolev Tu-144, it was the first EVER commercial supersonic jet, seems like humanity wasn’t ready for it yet. Will we ever be ? There is also a Turboprop An-12 that found its way here; these planes were generally used for transport. This little guy is the Antonov An-2, nicknamed Annushka; it was primarily used for crop dusting ! Here is the whole collection from the air - 9. Tupolev - 154 | Bulgaria What is going on here ? We are looking at a plane on a platform, in the middle of the black sea ! This soviet made Tupolev - 154 was the personal plane of Todor Zhivkov, a former communist leader in the country. Apparently it's the biggest airplane to ever be submerged; its expected to bring a lot of tourism to the area and the plane itself will soon become a bustling reef for little fishies to swim around in. 8.Miss Piggy | MANITOBA The Curtiss C-46, owned by Lamb Air was nicknamed Miss Piggy because of the massive amount of cargo she could hold. And at one point, her cargo consisted of pigs... So pigs CAN fly ! I thought it was a lie, so I did a quick google search. So, it's not lie, you CAN transport livestock with airplanes. Adc air Back to Miss Piggy; the airplane was starting a routine cargo delivery mission to the Arctic Co-Op. Shortly after take off; one of the engines lost oil pressure. The situation was dire so they tried to return to the Churchill Airport. No such luck though; Miss Piggy crash landed and 2 of the 3 on board were seriously injured. The airplane has been rusting away on the rocks for a long time now, but it did get a paint job from a movie production. 7. | Micronesia 6.Zhukovsky | RUSSIA What started off as a super secretive military base; usually compared to the likes of Edwards Air Force Base in the USA; the Zhukovsky Airfield in Russia ended up becoming a glorified tourist destination. It even offered tourist flights in expensive military jets. Which actually, doesn’t sound tooo bad, Would you take a flight in a modern fighter jet if you could? :O What we are looking at here is the glorious waste of materials; these cargo planes are huge, and hopefully they will be scrapped and recycled in the future. 5. | THE BAHAMAS 4. | Colombia 3.Pearls Airport - Grenada 2. Boeing 737 Attraction - Bali, Indonesia Its not easy to just transport a 737 all willy nilly like. But somehow this massive aircraft ended up in the town of Kuta, Indonesia. Looking at it from top down, you can see there are many houses surrounding it, how the hell did this plane get here? The story around the internet mentions a rich guy who wanted to turn this boeing into a public attraction, a restaurant of some sorts. He ran out of money, and the project was not picked up by anyone else. There is no recent news on this plane, so don’t plan your indonesia trip around it. 1.Maid of Harlech | WALES
You gotta watch this video as it is totally different flying experience than the usual Western standard! Join me on chasing the Soviet Russian Trijet - flying the Tupolev-154 of Alrosa Airlines to Siberia. This video reviews the whole flying experience on one of the last active Tupolev-154 in Russia, flying into deep Siberia inside the cockpit of Tu-154. It also include many great in-flight service footage.
Visit http://www.HenryTenby.com for classic airline DVDs The pleasure flight aboard the Air Koryo IL-62 on September 18, 2104, as part of the Juche Travel Services North Korea DPRK Aviation tour, and for me was the aviation highlight of the past 25 years. After departure we were able to move around the cabin to video and film to our heart's content. It was hard believe I was actually on board an IL-62 in 2014. A dream come true. With special thanks to Billy Hodson for the ground filming using my back up video cam.
