They Found This Massive Airplane In The Woods And Have NO IDEA How IT Got There…
There are abandoned Boeing 737s in Indonesia, and no one seems to know why. They sit on the same end of the island, about five kilometers apart, both on vacant scraps of land and holed up behind fences.
There are plenty of theories about how the aircraft got there. The most popular theory is that Boeing was originally installed by a wealthy businessman.
The aircraft is parked in a limestone quarry near the Raya Nusa Dua Selatan Highway.
According to a Bali-based blog, "a guy from Jakarta named Arif" owns the plane. Specifically, Bali Arrangements reported in 2020 that:
"He bought it in Jakarta and had it dismantled, then loaded into four shipping containers and transported it here in 2015. It’s been sitting up on stilts ever since. The long-term plan is to turn it into a restaurant and flight simulator eventually. Apparently, Arif has a 10-year lease on the land, but he needs an investment partner before he can start renovating the plane."
In the meantime, Arif's onsite muscle charges tourists to climb onboard (via a ladder) to take photos.
