Unknown Aircraft at Sondok
Democratic People's Republic of Korea (KP)
Is it an aircraft at all? It almost appears attached to the hillside surrounding it.

The aircraft in the image is a DC-3/C-47, sitting next to what appears to be some sort of catch basin with pumps and piping.

Might also be Lisunov Li-2, Soviet built version of DC-3 (NATO reporting name Cab, had loading door on the other side of fuselage and different engines) of which over 2000 were built.

Thanks for clearing that up. The length of the pumps and piping is similar to the plane next to it, and it was sleek enough to look airplane-like. However, the North Koreans aren't known for sleek.

Quite possibly an Li-2. It would be impossible to tell from this image but they're essentially the same plane.

I'm not sure it's not a tower of some sort. Seems to be throwing a fairly large shadow, but it's hard to tell at this resolution.
