Where do airplanes go when not flying? Viral video from US airport runway has all your answers

New Delhi: A haunting video of hundreds of airplanes parked on a runway at an airport in Victorville, California surfaced on the internet and swiftly went viral.

The novel coronavirus outbreak has majorly affected the travel industry. Travel restrictions have been levied across the globe and airplanes are grounded. But now that most of the flights are not taking off, have you wondered where they are parked? Well, an ameteur pilot decided to record the scenario in a video and shared it on YouTube. The dramatic visuals of the clip will leave you startled.

Bryan Keith flew over the Southern California Logistics Airport in his Grumman Tiger aircraft to offer a glimpse of the manner in which the airlines have parked their planes. The video, which was shot in coordination with the Air Traffic Control (ATC) department, shows over 400 empty planes parked beside each other, thereby flocking the runway.

"I don't even want to know how many billions of dollars of jets are down there," Keith said while flying over the airport.

"Victorville California is currently one of the largest airplane parking lots in the world due to the Covid-19 pandemic," the description of the video read.

At the time of filing this copy, the video had garnered over 3 million views. Netizens dropped several comments to express their thoughts about it. "This is truly a unique scene," a person commented. "It’s like something out of a movie I can just imagine a fallout type setting where these planes are rusted and everything is grown up," another comment read.
