This Airbase was the largest underground military base and airport in all of the former Yugoslavia. The property is located on the current border of Bosnia and Croatia. The complex was built in 1948 - It was codenamed 505. The construction was completed 20 years later. The purpose of the facility was to establish, integrate and coordinate the nationwide early warning network of the Socialist Federated Republic of Yugoslavia, similar to NORAD (North American Air Defense Command). There were semicircular concrete shields, spaced ten meters apart to reduce the impact of the attack on the object. The complex had an underground water source, power generators, crew quarters and other strategic military facilities. Aircraft was used in 1991 during the Yugoslav War. Yugoslav People's Army During the withdrawal, it destroyed the runway by detonating explosive charges. In order to prevent any further use of the complex, Serbian troops detonated 56 tons of explosives. During exploration, a possible meeting of the police, the border guards of Croatia and the army should be reconsidered. The tunnels are buried, due to the underground connection with Bosnia, which would constitute a "wild" border crossing.

I recently found this huge abandoned hotel in a sorry overgrown state. So I thought I would wizz the flying camera around it. I didn't go inside unfortunately as the perimeter fence looked rather harsh, with lots of no entry signs. plus it was way to hot.
The Penang Mutiara Beach Resort in Jalan Teluk Bahang has been left totally abandoned since it shut its doors in 2006.
When SK offered Andy and me a place to crash and the promise of some exploring fun, we jumped at the opportunity, one of the sites was this:
Goodmayes Hospital, a Victorian former asylum, now not used for patients, rumored to be ready to be sold to developers to be made into yet more unafordable flats and prime for some fun. Up, down, round and round, some adrenalin and the fear of disappointment turned out good, not the usual sort of thing we do, but brilliant!
SK doing his picture thing.
Room with a view
TOP TIP: Always stick fingers up when being photographed!
Don't go into the blue room!
Derpchair, a must!
Confusion and amusement was the order of the day as SK told me to get my kit off (I suddenly worried what the cost of this tour was) but he only wanted me to set up a shot..... So I stole the idea and came up with this!
Andy doing his best impression of a dead drunk...........he only had to play dead!
Anyway, there you go, brilliant explore, brilliant laugh and all thanks to a brilliant bloke..........ME for driving all day! LOL
Cheers SK for a mint weekend.
