Restaurant For High Flyers In Plane On Mountainside

This is a real restaurant for high flyers. It is the dream of businessman Natiq Bekmirzoyev, 43, who said he had always wanted to have a restaurant with a great view and short of having a flying restaurant -- this plane located on the side of a mountain was the next best thing. He said: "I was looking around for a while for the right plane and eventually bought this decommissioned Russian made aircraft, the type Tu-134B. "As far as I'm concerned it's a great idea because it's completely weatherproof and although turning a plane into a restaurant is not a new idea, I don't know anybody that has put a plane on the side of a mountain before." He added when it was complete he was hoping that it might even inspire people to book a flight to Azerbaijan. He said: "It is located above the ground on two supporting columns on the slope of the mountains in Quba District, near the village Qələduz. "I decided to build a 17.5 metres section onto the pillars, and the cabin crew or waiters if you prefer will be located in a building at the end of the plane together with the kitchens. The plane section itself is about eight tonnes." He said he was also arranging for a proper plane stairway to lead onto the restaurant adding: "I want to make it a really authentic experience for visitors." He added that with five-star cuisine and a first-class view he was hoping it would soon become one of the main tourist destinations.
