Mystery behind an abandoned Boeing 737 that was found sitting in the middle of a field in Bali - and NO ONE is sure how it got there
An abandoned Boeing 737 is parked in the middle of a field in Bali, with many travellers scratching their heads about where it came from. The large plane sits in a limestone quarry near the Raya
Nusa Dua Selatan Highway, not far from the Pandawa beach - a tourist hub.
Some Balinese have suggested the plane was dumped there by an ambitious entrepreneur keen to get a restaurant up and running inside it. The plane sits with runway stairs seen propped up against the front entrance.
The aircraft has become a tourist attraction with a travel guide saying it is hard to spot and is next to a collection of shipping containers. It's not the only retired Boeing 737 on the island, as other disused planes have been spotted in other parts, some used as tourist attractions.
One of them rests right next to nearby Dunkin Donuts, with its wing resting on the diner's wall. People also do not know how it got there. Some guessed that jet, which has no engines, was another abandoned restaurant idea or had planned to be used as a home.
It is thought to have been there since 2007 and was used as an event venue in 2018. One other retired jet was seen on top of a cliff at Nyang-Nyang beach in 2021, as a tourist attraction and had plans to be turned into a villa.
