Old Airplane Turned Into a Kindergarten

By on Friday, January 11, 2013

In the Georgian city of Rustavi, an old but fully functional Yakovlev Yak-42 aeroplane has been transformed into a kindergarten classroom. Head teacher Gari Chapidze bought the plane from Georgian Airways and arranged for it to be transported to the city of Rustavi, where he refurbished the interiors with educational equipment, games and toys but left the cockpit instruments intact so they could be used as play tools. There are around 1,500 buttons in the small Soviet-era plane’s cockpit which the kindergarten’s 15 children can play with as they imitate real pilots taking off.
