10 odd uses for airplanes

This is a house built by Bruce Campbell out of the Boeing 727 - he got a trendy, one-of-a-kind villa in the woods.




“Cosmic Muffin” is the most unusual boat, made out of a rare and historic aircraft - the Boeing 307 Stratoliner “( dating back from 1937)



Before the Cosmic Muffin, there was the Penthouse. The Boeing 307 Stratoliner was fitted with a luxury interior, including a bedroom, and named The Flying Penthouse after being used in World War II. It was originally owned by Howard Hughes which he bought in 1939.





This Boeing 307, the Clipper Flying Cloud belongs to the Pan American Airways and has been restored for the National Air and Space Museum (the Smithsonian). The fully functional plane is the world’s only remaining Stratoliner.


This villa in South Africa was not meant to have an aircraft as a penthouse, but a funny incident made it that way. Until the plane is removed, the inhabitants enjoy their own private, fully equipped plane.

This is not as uncommon as the rest, but it’s certainly something worth seeing while in Russia. The aviation museum in Russia is one of a kind.



When you see an abandoned airplane, you naturally try to make the best of it. This is what some clever Romanians did somewhere near a national road - a functional restaurant in a deserted aircraft.

An aircraft turned into an yacht. Until the rescue team arrives, one can enjoy the sun and water on the wing of the plane.


The following Fairchild C-123 was a part of one of the biggest scandals in the mid 1980’s, involved in Reagan’s plan to free US hostages held in Lebanon.  Long story short, the plane was shot down in southern Nicaragua and was eventually abandoned at the International Airport in San Jose. The current owners bought it for $3,000 and turned it into “El avion” - a restaurant, bar, coffee store, and a relic of the Cold War.
