Southeast Asia is a strange, strange place

Someone has abandoned a Boeing 727 at Hanoi's Noi Bai airport.

The plane has Cambodian flags on it, along with the name, likely of the owning company, "Air Dream". It's been sitting on the tarmac in Hanoi since late 2007, when it arrived from Siem Reap.

The Vietnamese have no idea who "Air Dream" is, and are about to sell the thing off for scrap.

It isn't new or spiffy or anything like that, but an airworthy 727 is worth some dough.

I'm not going to say, "This could only happen in Southeast Asia," but it somehow makes more sense that it did...
