Just a plug for a fascinating site: Artificial Owl. It's a pictorial record of abandoned man-made items or locations, anything from aeroplanes to atolls.

There's a great selection of aircraft pictures, including the one above which just begs the question of how on earth things ended up this way? Either it was a very unfortunate (or highly skilled) landing, or just an amazing construction project by someone with a bizarre sense of humor.

Definitely worth going through the Chernobyl images showing the abandoned town of Prypiat, stuck, unfortunately for it and it's residents, on the doorstep of the reactor site, and deserted now for 22 years.
