“Vroom” with a View

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. convertedboeing727

There’s even a jacuzzi us in the cockpit. Complete with control yokes. Bag of peanuts and coke are optional.

    I think I aw a TV special on that several years ago–it’s been around awhile, if it’s the same one. Sort of reminds me of a post-apocalyptic, “Mad-Max” kind of time…you know, like the plane was forced down and the stuck survivors were forced–Swiss Family Robinson style–to set up shop on site.
