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

It’s probably the most well known peacetime battle between the USA and the Soviet Union, in both technological and ideological terms of the 20th century.

So why didn’t Russia put a man on the moon? At the time the soviets were leading the space race, they had already started with the launch of Sputnik, then launched several probes to the moon, including one in 1959 that orbited and taken photos of the far side and By 1961 they were the first to put a man in to space. So when Kennedy made his now famous “We choose to go to the moon” speech in 1962 to rally public support, Khrushchev’s response was silence, neither confirming nor denying that they had a plan for a manned moon mission. But at the time Khrushchev wasn’t really interested in competing with the US over the moon, he was more interested ICBM’s the Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles for the strategic rocket forces. But there were others that had harboured plans for manned mission for a long time, these included the man whose name was a state secret and the most powerful man outside the Kremlin when it came to space. He was Sergei Pavlovich Korolev, outside the inner circle of the top space scientists he was known only as the “Chief Designer” or by his first 2 initials SP, because the Soviet leadership feared that the western powers would send agents to assassinate him........
