Engineer Bruce Campbell has been living in the airplane for six months each year since he bought the plane for $100,000 from Athens airport in 1999. The plane is buried deep within 10 acres of woods just outside Portland.
It is equipped with water, electricity, and sewage plus 1,066 square-feet of interior space. Bruce spent two decades converting the plane into a luxurious home.
The plane has a custom-built shower and two restrooms. The wings serve as a deck and the cockpit is a reading room.

Bruce explains why a plane makes a great home. He says:
“When properly executed, the remarkable appeal of a retired jetliner as a home springs from the magnificent technology and beauty of the sculptured structure itself.
Jetliners are masterful works of aerospace science, and their superlative engineering grace is unmatched by any other structures people can live within.They’re incredibly strong, durable, and long-lived. And they easily withstand any earthquake or storm.
Their interior is easy to keep immaculately clean because they are sealed pressure canisters, so dust and insects can’t intrude from the outside.”
“And they’re highly resistant to intruders. So the human hearts inside feel wonderfully safe and comfortable. And their interiors are exceptionally modern and refined and provide a wealth of unique amenities, superb lighting and climate control, and overwhelming storage space. Once the rows of seats are removed, their profound appeal as a family living environment becomes immediately obvious.”
“It’s a great toy. Trick doors, trick floors. Hatches here latch there. Having lots of little toys is very fulfilling. Having lots of little toys enclosed in a very big toy is nirvana.” he concluded.
Bruce offers tours of his airplane in the woods to those who are interested. You just need to contact him via his website to schedule a time.
