In what may be one of the largest single power moves in recent history, someone casually parked three massive Boeing 747 cargo planes on the tarmac at Kuala Lumpur International Airport and left them there.
At least Malaysia Airlines isn’t losing planes this time. Just owners.
Airport officials collectively said “what the fuck?” when they realized they had no idea who owns the gargantuan cargo planes, no idea how the planes got there, and no idea what to do with them.
Their solution? Put an ad in a couple of local newspapers and hope someone sees it and remembers their THREE FUCKING 747s. The notice includes that if the aircraft are not collected within two weeks, the airline reserves the right to sell them and use the cash raised to pay off debts.

What’s more concerning to me than the fact that airport officials have zero record of these planes, is that someone out there casually dumped three 747s faster than a girlfriend unwilling to split the cost of Plan B.
The call signs of the planes identify them as belonging to Air Atlanta Icelandic, but the company says it sold them in 2008. Now no one has any fucking idea who owns them.
According to airport officials, the owner has not paid the parking fee for the cargo planes, and they have no idea where to send the bill.
Illegally parking your expendable planes in a foreign airport and refusing to pay the parking fee? Fucking power move..
