Plane shaped swimming pool of death

Tuesday, 25th March 2008 by

Around this time last year we put together a collection of swimming pools shaped like airplanes.

And, at first glance, this pool in Slovenia seems to fit into that same category. But I wouldn't recommend going for a dip, as this pool is filled with petrol and designed to be set on fire!

Apparently this flaming pool of death, which is located near Brnik Airport, is used during firefighter training exercises.

But, surely a pool filled with petrol isn't very good practice for a burning craft? Why don't they just have a fire training craft like most other airports?
