The mystery of the abandoned jumbo jets: Malaysia officials attempt to trace owners of dumped aircrafts




gettyimages-500403514-1-736x414Malaysian airport officials are attempting to trace the owners of three jumbo jets that are sitting abandoned in an international airport for the last year. Airport operators in Kuala Lumpur have taken out newspaper adverts of the dumped aircrafts to try and find their owners.

The adverts state that the Boeing 747-200s must be collected within 14 days or the airport can sell or dispose of them. The move is hoped to recover debts owed to the airport.

According to Malaysia’s The Star newspaper, Air Atlanta Icelandic said it operated the planes until 2010 but did not know who owned the planes now. The airline denies such claims , telling┬áThe Star: “If it was ours, we would have claimed it.”
