Residents of the Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay) are wondering how long it will take to remove a disused Boeing 737 that has been abandoned in a busy road.

Real estate is very expensive in Mumbai. I think it should be converted into a shopping mall.

And to think I was bothered by the neighbor's old car on blocks.

Does anyone know for sure this isn't just a college prank, trying copy/top when Caltech students "liberated" an Air Force jet from a ROTC recruiter?

I couldn't find an online reference, and the print account of it is buried somewhere at my parents' house. (If anyone can find a link, I'd love to see it and refresh my memory of it.) What I vaguely remember is that sometime in the 1960s an Air Force recruiter had part of an F-104 (minus the wings) parked at Caltech as part of a recruitment drive. A bunch of enterprising Techers moved the plane to either in front of the recruiter's house or the Dean's house.

Please don't tow. As soon as I can find the keys

I will be right over to get it.

When I was a kid in Levittown PA, there was a plane near my house, I believe a 737, that was up on big cement pylons and converted into a restaurant. I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Sorry I can't find any pics of it on the web.

I know the place you are talking about!

I think it was a DC-3 plane, though.

Indeed, Boeing were so concerned about a spate of aeroplane/diner conversions that they shelved the smaller 711 version of their jumbo jet; citing fears that they would end up as convenience stores... (I'll get my coat)
