Footage from inside abandoned Boeing 747 at aeroplane graveyard

Footage from inside an abandoned Boeing-747 at a bizarre 'aeroplane graveyard'.

The jumbo jet is the largest aircraft in the patch of wasteland where a number of planes were dumped in Bangkok, Thailand.

It includes the front section of the giant 747, two other parts of 747 fuselage which have been turned into homes, and the remnants of other smaller Boeing 737s.

All of the planes were former commercial passenger jets but the liveries have been obscured making it hard to identify the carriers. It's not known how the aircraft came to be dumped there.

Inside the three-storey high abandoned 747, the hold is filled with parts of the plane that once carried the luggage hundreds of holidaymakers around the world every day.

While on the first floor a number of features from the flying days still exist, including storage shelves and overhead compartments.

A flight of stairs leads to the upper deck which once ferried first class passengers in luxury and at the front of the aircraft is the pilot's cockpit.

Some 20 metres away, vehicles whizz by on the busy main road in the Hua Mak district of the Thai capital.

The aeroplane graveyard has become a popular attraction with young tourists and backpackers who pay around 200 Thai baht (4.50gbp) to a family living on the wasteland to clamber through the wreckage.
