What to do with the pesky 727’s you have laying around the yard? Well, you could get them airworthy and fly ’em. John Travolta owns and flys a 707.
But there is another option: Turn them into living quarters. No longer do you need to get a second mortgage to cover the plane and the house. The plane is the house. In this photo, part of the hotel in Costa Rica.
Those on a budget can still live in high flying style. Joanne Ussary of Mississippi spent $2,000 for the plane, $4,000 to move, and $24,000 to renovate. The stairs open with a garage door remote, and one of the bathrooms is still intact.
There’s even a jacuzzi us in the cockpit. Complete with control yokes. Bag of peanuts and coke are optional.
