The entrance to a cave, shaped in the form of an aeroplane, can be seen under a mountain that was once the headquarters of former Chinese Communist military leader Lin Biao located on the outskirts of Beijing July 16.

Reuters reports: A cave that was once the headquarters of former Chinese Communist military leader Lin Biao, has been turned into a ‘Military Bar’ using old military ordnance as furniture including sandbags, helmets, artillery shells and land mines. Marshal Lin Biao used the cave as his military headquarters in 1968 shortly before he died in a plane crash in Mongolia, following what appeared to be a failed coup to oust Chairman Mao. Shortly after his death, he was officially condemned as a traitor by the Communist Party of China.  The cave, located in mountains on the outskirts of Beijing, has an entrance in the form of airplane.  If you're one of the few to make the trip to see it, bring a jacket as the cave is cold inside.
