This picture shows a large passenger airplane on the ground surrounded by over grown trees.

The foragers were excited with their find.
They attached twines and vines to the wings and nose, dragging the plane into the small clearing in the heart of the forest.
The craft was empty, totally devoid of life, the passengers and crew long gone.
The trees would provide a canopy of protection from anyone flying overhead.
No-one would think to look for it here.
And even if they did, by the time it was stripped of everything of value or use, there would be little left, another unexplained vanishing in what some call The Bermuda Triangle.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. That must have taken a lot of work to drag that plane.

  2. Nope, Not Pam says:

    Great idea, makes you think

    The truth is stranger than any fiction! I can believe this scenario!

  4. When I first started reading it I thought it was going to be some little clan of beings that were going to drag it into the forest and make it some sort of new city! Close except my idea fills the plane while yours ultimately empties it! 😅

  5. Reblogged this on Stine Writing and commented:
    Di has an idea of how this plane got dragged to a hidden area!

    Plenty of action in that movie. Well worth a look.
