ABANDONED CIA AIRCRAFT MIGHT BE THE MOST UNIQUE BAR ON EARTH (10 Pics)


The shores of Costa Rica, about a kilometre inland from the Pacific Ocean to El Avion bar– built inside and around an American C-123 Fairchild military airplane, to be exact.


The plane itself is an ex-CIA aircraft, abandoned at San Jose airport after the Reagan administration’s involvement in the Nicaraguan Revolution. It’s also the sister plane to the other C-123 Fairchild purchased by the CIA that was shot down during the Iran-Contra Affair in the 1980s. 


The owners of the restaurant bought the plane for $3,000 in 2000 and converted it into a pub and a two level bar and restaurant boasting the best sunset views in the region over the Pacific Ocean.

  1. The proper meaning of "unique" is "the only one of its kind". Nothing, then, can be more, or most, or rather, or very, or somewhat unique.

    If you use "unique" simply to mean "unusual", then you are destroying the meaning of a good word.
