Mystery behind an abandoned Boeing 737 that has been sitting in a field for Bali for years – so how did it end up there?

  • The Boeing 737 rests in a large ditch in a field just off the busy Raya Nusa Dua Selatan Highway on Bali 
  • Locals suggested a businessman wanted to start up a restaurant with the plane
  • It’s part of a collection of random aircraft in odd places at the tourist hot spot 

An abandoned Boeing 737 is parked in the middle of a field in Bali and it has been sitting there for years.

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 enclosed plane has no identification or branding on it. 

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.

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.
