I noticed on the google earth that near the namtaeryeong (남태령) station on the line four there is this plane of quite large proportions. And there is no landing field there. It’s not one of those shots where a plane flying overhead happened to get in the shot either, as the plane has been there for some time.

Check out just down and to the right of the cursor sitting on the subway icon.

We went on a mission to go strolling around the area to see if we could see what it was all about but went slightly the wrong way and ended up walking up a track where some light construction or terraforming was going on. It seemed that this is one of the areas where some of the land-slides happened last rainy season, so the govt is putting in some water drains. Re the plane, there is some army headquarters in that area of the city’s south, so my guess is that the plane’s got something to do with that. Maybe they practice high-jacker situations with it. At least the old style ’70s high-jacker style where the terrorists kept the plane at the airport and waved their guns out the pilot’s window.
