Odd uses of airplanes! (Part 2)
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 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.
