Aircraft or Coffee Shop

This is a DC-3 aircraft at Shangrila Lake. It was owned by M/s. Orient Liners. About 30 years back, this plan had to crash land in Indus River due to one engine getting out of order, three minutes after it took off from Skardu Airport. All crew members and pessangers were safe.

Later on, the owner of Shangrila Resourte (an Ex-Army Brig. purchased this, and managed to transport it to this place which is about 2-3 km away from the place where it crash landed. Now this plan serves as Coffee Shop for the tourists staying/visiting at Shangrila Tourist Resorts, near Skardu.
