The second abandoned Boeing 737 on Bali, is in an open lot next to a doughnut shop in Kuta on the Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai (not far from the airport and about 8km north of the first 737). Given the urban setting and busy road, it must have also been trucked in with the wings removed and with great difficulty put into place and reassembled. This Boeing 737 is pretty much lacking official markings other than JO on the nose wheel hatch door.

The second abandoned Boeing 737 I saw on Bali, is in an open lot next to a doughnut shop in Kuta on the Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai!

It has been there since 2007, so originally it too may have also been planned to be a restaurant or even somebody’s home? I believe that most recently, it was planned to be, or was briefly a flight simulator business but that obviously failed too. Now this abandoned Boeing 737 sits forlornly atop plinths, with its engines missing and has just been left to the graffiti artists (earlier photos online show the aircraft sitting on its wheels, facing a different direction and with the engine nacelles boarded up).

Failed flight simulator business? Failed restaurant? The urban setting makes this abandoned Boeing 737 very unique!

Abandoned Boeing 737’s – a Bali thing

You can wander around it for free (there was no fence during my visit). I have read online about locals offering to take you inside it for a fee but despite some people sitting about, that certainly didn’t happen whilst I was there.

The abandoned Boeing 737 is near the Bali airport but is certainly not taking off any time soon!
