747 in Udon Thani


Recommended Posts

On the ring road travelling west towards the airport they are assembling a 747 aircraft for some purpose. Anyone have any ideas or information? Tourist attraction, or I'm thinking a restaurant.

That would be the one that was sitting at the airport for years, now probably going to be striped for metal ?

 

Could be turned into accommodation if one had money, time and patience.

This one is at the Airplane Park to the west of Korat near the University. Seems to be all the rage. (if you've got the space)

Thais like to copycat ideas

couple of updated pictures, the fuselage is complete, tail section added and wings mostly there. It looks as rough as a stucco bathtub and there's been no activity on site for a while
