In the country of Georgia, an old Yak-42 airplane has been transformed into a kindergarten classroom. Headmaster Gari Chapidze arranged for the plane to be transported to the city of Rustavi and its interior was refurbished to house desks and educational toys but the cockpit has been left intact to let the children play with the controls. He hopes playing on the airplane will help the kids to develop technically. According to the Telegraph, there are twenty children at the kindergarten but lots more have been added to the waiting list since the aiplane arrived. You can get a closer look at the unique classroom in the video below:
