A bizarre mystery surrounds an abandoned Boeing 737, which remains planted in the middle of a field in Bali.

To this day, nobody knows how the giant aircraft got there.

Located in a limestone quarry near the Raya Nusa Dua Selatan Highway, the place where the plane was discovered is only a short journey from the popular Pandawa beach.

Plenty of theories have circulated as to how the plane got there, as is often the case with the bizarre and unexplained.

The most popular is the suggestion from locals that the Boeing was originally installed by a wealthy businessman.

Legend has it that he wanted to turn it into a restaurant but ran out of funds before he could finish, and so he simply left the plane parked in the field. But, as said, this has never been confirmed by authorities.

While the defunct aircraft has piqued the interest of plenty of urban explorers over the years hoping to experience something a little different on their travels, unfortunately it is fenced off and only available to see from a viewpoint.

However, oddly enough, there is in fact another stranded Boeing 737 in Bali.

Located next to a Dunkin' Donuts branch, the vehicle is believed to have been there since 2007, with rumors similarly suggesting it was once set to become a restaurant.

This second deserted plane was used as an events venue in 2018, and now remains as a fascinating fixture.

For those interested in visiting the first Boeing, Atlas Obscura's Tony Dunnell offered up a few directions, saying it's 'easy enough to reach' as long as you can 'spot it from the road'.

He explained: "The view of the plane is obstructed from the highway, so you need to keep your eyes open, or you could easily miss it.

"When you come across a wall of sea containers on the side of the road, you are have arrived. You can see the plane by climbing up onto the containers that surround it.

"Or, for a better view, head slightly further down the road where you’ll find a path that leads up above the plane. You’ll have to pay a small fee to enter, as the plane is on private property."
