From MASSIVE Airplane graveyards, to mysterious planes on the beach; These are 11 AMAZING Abandoned Airplanes ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 11. Marshall Islands Underwater Plane 10. Thailand Airplane Graveyard 9. Abandoned Yugoslavian Air Base 8. Mojave Airport 7. Eerie Abandoned Hangar 6. Abandoned Navy Air Station 5. RAF Kittyhawk A mysterious world war II aircraft was found in the middle of the Sahara desert in the country of Egypt in 2012. It was found nearly intact and the dry conditions of the Sahara allowed it to be well preserved. This is believed to be a P40 Kittyhawk fighter plane which is a single seat fighter plane used by the Americans from 1939 to 1945. It’s often featured with some type of artwork such as a shark's mouth but it’s believed to be one that the British had acquired from the US. The British would like to see it returned to their home soil in order for it to be on display at museum. However, Egypt claims that it doesn’t belong to them since it was never found on British soil. Plus the British have a ton of Egyptian artifacts on display at the British museum so we don’t see this one going their way. 4. Douglas Super DC-3 On the mysterious black sands of a beach in Iceland, lies a piece of an abandoned aircraft. On November 24, 1973 a US Navy airplane was forced to crash land on a remote beach, south of the capital, Reykjavik. It appears as though it’s remained untouched for over 40 years until a farmer came across it in 2014. All of the windows are smashed from the inside and both wings are missing. All the crew survived the crash and it seems to be a mystery why it was forced to crash land in the first place. Some believe it was from horrific weather conditions in the north atlantic. But this took place during the cold war, is it possible it was shot down by the Soviets? Others claim it just simply ran out of fuel, forcing them to land on Iceland. What you see here are some drone images for the plane from an aerial view and it’s kinda hard to even tell if it’s a plane or not. 3. Mexican Drug Plane Imagine you were on vacation in Mexico and you stumbled upon an abandoned plane that had a white powdery cargo. There’s many rumors about this photo of a plane sunken have way into the sand and it’s hard to say exactly which story is the truth. However, some claim that it was discovered by tourists near Mexico and that the plane was struck by lightning or shot down by the mexican, causing something to malfunction. No bodies or survivors where found and believed they fled the scene so they wouldn’t get caught with a large quantity of contraband. You can imagine some people might be having a good weekend. What are your thoughts on this one? What ever true story may be, it certainly is a beautiful photo. 2. Soviet VVA-14 This abandoned prototype of a soviet vertical take off amphibious vehicle has left many people rather intrigued by the strange design. It was a promising design at first and would allow it to take off from the water, cruise at high altitudes and to destroy US submarines. The aircraft sits at a the Russian Federation Central Air Force museum in rusty condition to say the least. In 1974, it did manage to log in 107 flights with a 103 hours in the air. Here we see two pilots, aboard the aircraft, getting ready to take on this beast of engineering. However, it appeared as though the soviets were asking for a little too much out of this aircraft and the engines needed a serious upgrade before it could be ready for battle. Once the designer passed away in 1974, the project began to slow down and the upgrades were never made. 1.The Boneyard If you’re a fan of abandoned aircraft or just aircraft in general and you take a trip to the Boneyard, it’ll be like you almost died and went to heaven. There are thousands of abandoned planes used by the Air Force. They also take advantage of the dry conditions of the American Southwest, in the city of Tuscon, Arizona, in order to keep the planes from severely. This is officially named as the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base where America stores excess military aircraft just in case world war 3 breaks out. This has also been a holding ground for aerospace vehicles as well and there’s an estimated 4000 aircraft either waiting to scrapped, storage, or to be reused. This is situated on 2600 acres of Arizona desert and it’s quite the interesting place to explore on google maps. Anything from fighters from World War II to heavy bombers used in the Vietnam war can all be found at this one spot. Some believe that there’s at one of every plane that the US has ever commissioned can be found here rotting away. Except probably the secret ones, they don’t want us to know about

1:04 "Relentlessly graffitied by gangs?" Are you high? It's a wreck, there is nothing relentless about it and not everyone spraying is a gangmember. Never seen so many prejudices in so few words, you are a really dispicable person.

Oh my God there's so many things wrong with this yes a dc-9 or or SkyTrain I forgot the military name for it but how would the Russians be able to shoot at a dc-9 almost across the world make and crash land

A MIG is a MIG. It is most an M.I.G. Those aircraft in the bone yard are NOT rotting away. Whoever the narrator is, he seems to be lacking in knowledge.

(7:18) There will no doubt shortly in the future be a "Public Auction" similar to after WW2 in the UK when all Trucks, Cars, Motorcycles etc were stored at Ruddington Near Nottingham, and sold off early 60's. I bought 2 bikes, a Royal Enfield 350cc single, and a Brand New Norton 350cc ESR for a friend, for next to nothing.

(5:18) It's a ✈ Plane alright, but no doubt it crashed, being unable to maintain altitude with no wings !

Well, your making money off a video in which you have to be the WORST historian ever. First off, the vast majority of these planes are not "Abandoned" They either crashed, ran out of budget money, or are simply in storage. Every airplane buff in the world knows about the WWII aircraft that were crashed or scuttled in the South Pacific. It is hardly surprising when another cache of them shows up. Learn your subject material and HAVE A CLUE what your talking about.....Jeez.

Talks about a P40, shows a Spitfire. No the Russian plane was not meant to cruise at "very high altitudes" but exactly the opposite: use ground effect at very low altitudes. No vertical takeoff either.

Zeljava (Željava) Nr. 9! It is abandoned Yugoslavian airbase, buth 1992. was destroyed by Yugoslavian army, because it was obvious that will fall in hands of Croatian army. On the end, landing facilities are in Croatia and all other underground objects are in Bosnia and Hercegovina. The base is really big and it was state of the art when it was made. In this video it's mentioned that was bombed by NATO in 1999. That is a false information. NATO was bombing Serbian forces in Serbia and Kosovo, and 1999. serbs didn't have control over the Željava (Croatia and BiH), this abandoned army base was already abandoned, and war between Serbs, Muslims and Croats stopped 1995. I'm living 180 kilometers from that base, in town Jajce (BiH) and I'm planning a visit to Željava next Sommer. Željava is near town Bihac (Bihać, BiH) and everybody who won't to visit this place, it can be tricky because it's on border between BiH and Cro, buth it's not impossible. Greetings people!

Mojave Airport is not abandoned, and neither are the planes.

The mystery DC3 in Iceland is no bloody mystery. The pilot switched to the wrong tank and the plane bellylanded on the black sand, that is not mystical. Its sand you fool. It was never forgotten and not found by a farmer in 2014, it has been a fact and a go to object since 1974. The wings and the engines were salvaged by the US Marine in the following year. where do you find thease amateurs. Jeezzz.

Dude! You must rank among the laziest-assed "producers" on YT. Your commentary sucks out loud. Do some research, for goodness sake! Stealing images and then making up crap about what you can see is wasting everybody's time. You'll be one of the last I ever even think of subscribing to. I'm speculating that your subscribers have a poor grasp of general knowledge and barely understand English. I won't be watching anything by American Eye again.

This station is is for idiots. Yugoslavia in the "Baltic States"? Yeah, that's the same as the BALKINS! Estonia as in Yugoslavia, right? Fall of "Communism"??? Yugoslavia was a Socialist state which allowed ownership of businesses especially co-ops (barely Socialist let alone communist!). Rusting aluminium planes??? I could go on. This was based on watching only 3 min its of this. What else is FALSE on this regurgitated site? Those with a CLUE leave now.

The plane in Mexico may have been landed there intentionally and it now used as a warehouse where contraband can be dropped for later picking and distributing. This is not a safe place to vacation.
