Yep that's right KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) has not one, not two, but THREE unclaimed Boeing 747's and are looking for their owners.

'Paging the owner of a white Boeing 747, could you please return to your plane you have left your lights on'



n a notice in The Star’s classifieds section on Monday, Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd, which manages KLIA, gave the unknown owner of three Boeing 747-200F aircraft 14 days to collect his planes.

“If you fail to collect the aircraft within 14 days of the date of this notice, we reserve the right to sell or otherwise dispose of the aircraft,” the notice read, adding that the money raised would be used to offset any expenses and debts due.

Looks like someone finally figured out where we keep the Masonic chemtrail planes.

I just hope they're not parked on the Barrio side. All the chrome and wheels will be missing when the owners come to collect.

I saw this earlier, and I know they are not the same type of planes...but there are 2 missing planes and 3 are parked in an airport in the same city. I found it a bit creepy.

Okay, I see a new movie on the horizon. In the same vein as Dude, Where's My Car? we have:

Dude, Where's My Plane?

I just tried to butt-alarm my key fob, but it looks like they aren't mine because no one jumped.

It's not the first time someone has done something like this. Their company gets in trouble and can't afford the fees, so they leave the aircraft and disappear so creditors can't get them.

That's pretty much what has happened. Although it's hard to believe that they own the planes outright. Surely a bank somewhere is owed financial payments for them. A big plane is a bit hard to 'lose' I would have thought.

Obviously not.

There aren't many -200s, even freighters left flying. I believe it's less than 30 worldwide. You can buy them outright relatively cheaply for aircraft.

So is there the equivalent of an automobile VIN number on these aircraft that they can use to track down the owners?

Yes, there is. I think the article insinuates they know who owned these planes since the company mentioned in the article, but they can't be reached. So, the law is to put up a public notice. The company has dissolved.

Anybody interested in starting an airplane repo biz?

All aircraft have a data plate inside the door that includes the serial number and the construction number or manufacturer serial number. Unless they strip the data plate it's pretty easy to track the owner. It's harder to find them.

If they auction them the Air Force would be smart to grab at least one or two of them and send them to AMARG.

Maybe it is similar phenomen as
Abandoned Ferrari Enzo???

Possibly the super-rich people are escaping before it is too late.

It's not uncommon for this to happen with cargo planes. Maintenance costs get high, fuel costs get high, while freight demand dips, and suddenly you can't afford to keep the planes flying. Owners get greedy and don't want to lose assets by declaring bankruptcy, so they park the planes and disappear.

Sounds like roofing companies.

There's an Il-76 acting as a billboard at a closed down airfield that supposedly was a Soviet monument. According to the story an arms dealer paid a pilot $20,000 to fly it from where it was, out to the airfield, and left it there.
