HAVANA, Dec. 23rd. The remains of a plane that crashed in Cuba in 1976 are part of a house near the Havana airport.The inhabitants of that house, located behind the Mazorra psychiatric hospital in Boyeros, decided to expand it towards the fuselage section of the DC-8 CU-T1200 of Cubana de Aviación, which collided in the air with the AN-24 CU-T829 – also of the Cuban state airline – on March 18, 1976.
The user identified on Facebook as “AdrLeo – My Aviation Page” visited the place and posted incredible images of it; but he does not clarify how that part of the nave was attached to the house.
It currently serves as a living room and communicates with the rest of the house. It has a floor and some armchairs to rest on.
The Internet user who visited the house claims that the fuselage train is in the courtyard and cannot be seen from the street.
Its owners have turned it into a cozy space although from the outside it appears to be being devoured by weeds.
On March 18, 1976, the DC-8-43 aircraft, registration CU-T1200, collided in mid-air with an AN-24, registration CU-T829 while on a training flight near Havana.
The DC-8 was able to land without problems despite having lost part of a wing and an engine, but the AN-24 crashed to the ground and its five crew members died.
