What looks like a jetliner that has miraculously landed in the woods is actually one man's dream retreat! Inspired by his passion for the aircraft as well as the need for shelter, Oregonian Bruce Campbell converted a Boeing 727-200 into a home. Campbell is not looking to be in Better Homes and Gardens - instead of turning the airplane into a full-fledged house he has adapted his daily life to live onboard an airplane. In a true labor of love, Cambell bought an entire decommissioned plane, took it apart, and reassembled it in a thicket of trees - making it seem almost as if the impossible happened.

    Russell Day, the demise of the 727 was due to the ETOPS rules which no longer required more than 2 engines for overseas operations. If ETOPS still required 3 or more engines, it would have been the 737 that met its demise. Why have more engines than you need?

    Many would like to live in a plain but I suspect that in many countries, mine included, this kind of house would be forbidden by authorities.

    Wonderful, what with the decking of the wings, water tank and galley usage, translucent floors. De-mating of the wings at a certain number of hours contributed to the downfall of the 727 with it’s Kruger flaps that allowed a wide speed range. Like so many the pure jet engines burned too much and had shorter times between overhaul. They were turned into lots of beer cans as were so many old plane we will never even know existed.
