Now that's certainly an unusual sight but definitely cool. - Original owner Aer Lingus - it's a long way from home.

I remember being surprised by this aircraft the first time I saw it in Damascus in the 1980s. Sadly, looking at Google Earth today (Feb 2010) the aircraft/restaurant has now disappeared from its former location. (Lat 33.514881°, Long 36.318291°) It looks as though the whole site has been demolished. I wonder what happened to the aircraft?

Was in Damascus last week and can confirm it is not longer there, replaced by a car park!
