The strangely fascinating shots show an aeroplane boneyard where three planes, a huge Boeing 747 and two McDonnell Douglas MD-82s, have been left to rot for no apparent reason.

The wasteland, which is situated in Ramkhamhaeng, eastern Bangkok, is occupied by several poor Thai families who live in small sheds next to the wreckages and act as gatekeepers - charging tourists $4 to access the ghostly site.

These eerie images were captured by Claudio Sieber, a Nomadic explorer and photographer from Switzerland.

The 35-year-old said: "I'm not really interested in tourist maps, instead I prefer to spend my time urban exploring off the beaten track. 
"I decided to go to the plane graveyard around sunset to catch a better light and shadow composite.

"When approaching the gate, the family conquering the sight there told me to come back the next day so I circled the yard to find a hidden way in.

"For me, illegal admittance plays a certain role in urban exploring. Even though, it's not a big deal to pretend one doesn't know about the rules, I could explore the sight by myself with a bit of an adrenaline rush."
