(FOX) -- Airport officials in Spain are stumped over a “ghost plane” at Madrid’s Barajas airport that appears to be in a “state of abandonment” after reportedly being left on the tarmac for years.
A notice posted on Spain’s Official State Gazette seeks to find the owner of a McDonnell Douglas MD-87, an aircraft that has not moved for years and, according to a Spanish newspaper, was tied to multiple failed businesses.
The abandoned MD-87, which is registered as EC-KRV, was once owned by Spanish charter airline Pronair and made regular trips to China until it closed down in 2008, El Pais reported. A few years later it reportedly was acquired by Saicus Air -- a cargo carrier that went bankrupt in 2010.
