The Boeing 737 is the most popular passenger aircraft in the history of civil aviation. His first generation of flies since 1967 and to the present day released ten versions. Determined to get rid of older models, the national airline of Ethiopia in 2012 sold the ship at auction for 1.5 million dollars. The buyer was a businessman Guttata gutta (Gutta Guttama) from the suburbs of Addis Ababa, Burayu town.
He had long wanted to expand his business, planning to open a new entertainment center. Seeing the plane, gutta immediately realized that can turn it into a trendy café. It may not immediately, but udalas. First, the complexity expected of a businessman during delivery: it took seven hours despite the fact that the journey took only 15 miles away. Before you load a huge ship on a trailer-trailer needed to disassemble the wings. Then another two years a new “room” was repaired, and finally in November 2014 aviation cafe with a length of 34 meters and a width of 14 meters, received its first visitors.
It immediately became known for its originality, but then the popularity has added bees, who settled among the mechanisms of the aircraft. Cafe administration decided to take advantage of that, using unexpected “apiary” on purpose. Now honey here is made the infusion that has no equal in taste and quality. The fermentation lasts about a month. Visitors say honey drinks can be enjoyed in many cafes of Ethiopia, but they are not natural and are delicious.
As in conventional aircraft, in the cafe economy-class and VIP area; total capacity is 60 people. Find out why with age in men change your taste preferences.
