The Boeing 747 Restaurant of South Korea

Repurposing old buildings is quite the thing to do these days, but it’s not a scratch on applying such recycling principles to giant-sized vehicles. A Boeing 747, the first jumbo jet to be flown commercially, sits in South Korea – a decommissioned airliner that found a new lease of life converted into a restaurant.

It looks a little out of place stuck in the middle of the city, looming over the highway yet dwarfed by surrounding apartments, but it casts even more of a forlorn figure when you find out it has been abandoned for the second time and is no longer in use as an eatery either. Crying shame; we’d have definitely sampled the aeronautically themed ambience.
