A £13 billion hole that can suck in a helicopter


Fascinating and should i say it's another wonder of the word? This gigantic diamond shaped hole was what transformed the then USSR from a war torn country to a post WW2 modern global power.

The hole used to be a mine that yielded £13 billion worth of gems. The Mir mine is 1,722 foot deep with diamond of 3,900 deep.

The location is Dubbed Diamond City, however, this hole has been know to suck helicopters towards its depth. In fact, the hole is so vast that it tends to use its powerful downward air flow to suck in helicopters as reported. For this reason, air space above it has been closed for helicopters.
