Mystery of the abandoned Boeing 737 plane in Bali
AN abandoned Boeing 737 plane in a field in Bali has turned into a tourist attraction – and how it got there is a mystery. The plane has no identification or branding badges and currently sits off the Raya Nusa Dua Selatan highway, five minutes from the famous Pandawa Beach.
The abandoned plane sits in a field just off a highway on the island of Bali. Surrounded by shipping containers and a shabby hut, how nobody noticed the plane’s arrival remains a mystery. Some speculate the aircraft’s body was meant to be converted into a restaurant but the owner ran out of money and left it to rust away.
While no one knows the exact date of its arrival, plants growing around the metal framework suggest it has been there quite some time. Over time, the abandoned Boeing 737 plane has become a tourist attraction with people travelling for miles to come and see it.
But the vessel is locked away by a huge gate as it sits on private land, and is protected 24 hours a day by a security guard. Those wanting to get up close are required to pay a fee and only the luckiest of them are allowed to go inside the actual plane.
Travel blogger and popular YouTuber Josh, from Exploring With Josh, recorded the exciting moment he turned up to see the mysterious plane. In his video, the excited lad says: “I have no idea how they got this plane to just sit here, but it’s here.”
As his attempts to get inside the vessel are rebuffed, he says: “I have never drove (sic) this far not to get inside something.”
This plane is not the only abandoned aircraft on the island, with another mysterious Boeing 737 lying derelict in Kedonganan next to a Dunkin’ Donuts outlet. The curious Boeing 737, whose large wings cross a main road, can even be seen on Google Maps.
