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

The VVA 14 is not a VTOL it's not strictly an airplane but is in fact an ekranoplan , designed to to use ground effect to skim just a few feet above the surface of the water at high speed. You seriously need to do some proper research on subjects you obviously know nothing about before uploading videos .

The airfield in the Mohave, is FAR from abandoned.  It's a storage lot where old planes are stripped down for parts and all else is recycled.

For the Soviet VVA-14, no, it is not an aircraft, but something called an ekranoplan. This ekranoplan is classified as a ground effect vehicle, developed by the Soviets during the Cold War. Other Soviet ekranoplans exist like the Lun-class, carry large missiles to use against enemy ships, and the first ekranoplan, the KM (Korabi Maket) “Caspian Sea Monster.” Edit: just to say (if I didn’t say it), ekranoplans are NOT meant to fly. For the Soviets, the ekranoplan can provide fast transportation of tanks, armored vehicles, and troops just above the water but below enemy radar. What they said is somewhat right, but the rest of the information about it is somewhat wrong, one of them mistaking the VVA-14 as an aircraft.

Sgt Meow given to Britain by America. Britain was short of planes. America gave/sold them Kitty Hawks and War Hawks. The P-40 stood up rather well in the Desert War. It couldn't dog fight for crap but it was an excellent low level ground support plane

The "Boneyard" in Arizona, Davis-Monthan AFB, HAD WWII aircraft AFTER WWII and for about a dozen years after the war. There haven't been any WWII era aircraft there since the late 1950s, early 1960s. Those were sold/gvien to foreign countries or sold to private parties. Today's boneyard houses thousands of Cold War and post Cold War aircraft only...

Some factual remarks about sections 9 and 7. Reality can get more outlandish than some cooked up story about MiG's. What we can see are the remains of a Dakota and an American fighter jet. In the 1950's Yugoslav leader general Tito actually did receive a bunch of US Republic F-84 jet fighters for his air force. Typical American Cold War policy to induce dissension amongst so-called Communist friends, since Yugoslavia was not part of the Warsaw Pact. The Belgian 'airfield' is actually no longer an aerodrome. In WWII this airfield at Vissenaken was home to some Belgian units until the Germans bombed it in may 1940. Later the Luftwaffe used it as an auxiliary field. After the war the hangars became an army facility to aid in future national mobilisations in case of a war. Today it is a repair and restoration site for the Royal Military Museum of Belgium. There is no link with the French. Weird conclusion in a fake story of an explorer feeling uneasy at the discovery of a secret location. Get real!

"Keep an eye on the landmines in the area". Jezus Christ,ever seen a landmine from nearby? Ever seen anti personel mines from nearby? I have! Do not ever take your chances at abandoned army basis,especially when they are overgrown because you won't notice landmines or booby traps till you step on them,in the best case they kill you instantly but more likely you will lose a leg and/or an eye. Having fun?
