Retired plane converted into supermarket in Chengdu neighborhood

At a neighborhood in the Sichuan capital of Chengdu, residents can board an airplane to do some shopping or play mahjong.

The old retired Soviet plane sits in the middle of the residential community surrounded by trees and a pool. It has been dubbed the European Garden.

Underneath, locals can drink some tea and chit-chat with friends while the aircraft is well-supported by some tables and such.

Inside, there is a well-stocked supermarket on one end and space to play mahjong on the other while enjoying the cool breeze of air-conditioning.

The aircraft is the property of the residential communitys owner. It has apparently been in the neighborhood for quite some time but was only recently converted to a supermarket/mahjong parlor.

Heres how it looked before:
