Bangkok's Plane Graveyard !!

in #beautifulsunday3 months ago

Today i was searching to do something different in Bangkok city i didn't want to walk the malls or the streets of Bangkok city i wanted to see abandon stuff maybe haunted houses or buildings as i was searching google on abandon projects in Bangkok this plane graveyard came up , i thought yeah love to see this so set my google map and of i went.

Reading some stories about this plane graveyard on google it was telling me the quickest , easiest and cheapest way to get there was by taking the canal boat up the canal river so i took the Skytrain to Chitlom station and then it was a short walk to ChitLom Pier here i took the canal boat to the last stop called Wat Sirboonrueng Pier.

The boat ride is about 45 minutes and cost less the one dollar US this will take you to the last stop but on the way you will see a lots of interesting graffiti and old and new Bangkok city houses and buildings many abandon houses also which i will have to take a walk along this part of the canal another time to check out my haunted houses 🤣

I arrive at the last stop and the plane graveyard is suppose to be right next to Wat Sirboonrueng Pier which is the name of the last stop.

I ask a lady at the pier and she told me just walk up to the walkway bridge and down on your left you will see a big open bushy land and it's in there which is on the same side as where i got of and she was right.

You not actually allowed to walk through this open land it's private property, i tried to focus in on what was going on at the other end but it was a fair distance away , so i had to work out a different way to get to the other end this i did by finding this little wooden bridge that a Monk from the building was pointing to me the way to go that was very nice of him.

The Monks living quarters.

The little wooden bridge i had to cross to get over the other side of this small canal which had a concrete walkway to the other end.

Walking along the canal on top of this concrete walkway i was starting to see some planes which were not intacted with graffiti all over them but a good sign i was on the right path.

As i was getting closer i could see a fuselage of maybe DC9 and possibly a old Boeing 747 that had certainly seen it's days of flying.

As i approached the other end i climbed up to the main road via some steps which then bought up in front of this plane graveyard it was fenced off with Covid-19 and private property signs not that i needed to go in i had pretty much good views of what was on this property and what the workers on the land were doing.

It was obvious that what was left in this plane graveyard these planes were getting dismantled and taken away to who knows where but i am lucky i made it out here today to see what's left of this plane graveyard when i saw it on google it showed that there were more planes here but unfortunately some have been dismantled and taken away already so i am happy to at least seen a couple still here.

I would say maybe those half fuselage that are been used as living quarters may remain they look pretty cool it would be like living in a huge hanger.

Was happy to see at least a couple of these big birds on the ground although it was very strange that they were placed in close to residential areas , i do wonder what there intention and purpose was to placing these planes sitting here.

Interesting. I think i remember in Indonesia i saw a kind of ship grave but here.... how the planes moved there is probably an interesting story too.

Was interesting to see and how they got there would of been a challenge especially the Jumbo ?
