Puzzled Indians Put B737 To Good Use

The BBC reports this day that the hull of an Air Sahara B737 turned up in a residential neighborhood in Mumbai, India to the initial puzzlement and then to the utility of the locals.

It seems that the aircraft ran off the runway last year and the hull was disassembled and placed on a flatbed. When the driver got lost he threw up his hands in despair and abandoned the load.

Some folks took up residence, using the cargo hold as a makeshift kitchen and some other folks used the wing attach points to run clotheslines from, once again proving that the Mumbai man or woman in the street knows how to get busy on a good thing when it comes his or her way.
