Status since photo:

Namyangju's Boeing 747 jumbo jet, with the registration number N747PA and the name Clipper Juan T. Trippe, is the second 747 jumbo jet ever built and the first 747 ever to be commercially flown (in 1969). It was originally owned by Pan Am and was named after the company's chairman. In 1999, it was decommissioned in San Bernardino, California. It was sold to a Korean couple who had it disassembled and shipped to Namyangju to serve as a restaurant in July 2000. The business failed and the giant plane was abandoned in the city, where it rests empty and lifeless to this day.

Update: As of December 2010, this location has been demolished. Information about its demolition is available here and additional background information is available here.
