    Oregon man who has lived inside Boeing 727 for more than 15 years wants to make second airplane home in Japan with aircraft that can seat up to 660 passengers





    An Oregon man who has already made a Boeing 727 airplane his home has set out to make a second home in Japan with a decommissioned 747 which can seat up to 660 passengers.
    Bruce Campbell, who spends half of the year in Japan, said he is looking for a retired 747-400 - used by airlines including United, British Airways and Delta - to make a second airplane home in the city of Miyazaki.
    For more than 15 years, he has been living inside of a retired Boeing 727 in Portland, converted into a home complete with a sleeping area with a cot, a kitchen, a laundry area and a bathroom - a project costing him roughly $220,000.

    For more than 15 years, he has been living inside of a retired Boeing 727 in Portland, converted into a home. The project cos him roughly $220,000
    'If a conventional home is a legacy age family Chevy or Ford, an airliner home is a fresh new Tesla or Porsche Carrera,' Campbell said in an interview with the San Antonio Express-News.
    In 1999, the former electrical engineer had a vision: to save retired jetliners from becoming scrap metal by reusing them.
    Campbell was in his early 20s when he paid around $23,000 for the 10 acres on which his 727 rests in the Portland woods.
    His original plan was to make a home from freight vans, but then he decided a plane would be better.
    He purchased the 727 for $100,000 after hearing about a Mississippi hairdresser who had done it.
    Campbell has since created a website with details on the progress he has made on renovating the plane's cabin, making into a suitable home with the cabin and cockpit providing 1,066 sqft.

    He said the plane is a 'reasonable-size home for an individual or small family, but not so large that it can't be transported over public roads'
    He told the Express-News that the plane is a 'reasonable-size home for an individual or small family, but not so large that it can't be transported over public roads.'
    Campbell also said airliners, free of passengers and the clutter of their seats, are a 'sheer thrill' to live in, adding they 'impart a near-science fiction aura to an otherwise ordinary life.'
    He previously said he sees the task of saving retired jetliners as part of his goal in life.
    'Mine is to change humanity's behavior in this little niche,' he said in a 2014 interview.

    Campbell is one of a small number of people worldwide who have transformed retired aircraft into a living space or other creative project, although it is not clear precisely how many planes are re-used this way

    Campbell is one of a small number of people worldwide who have transformed retired aircraft into a living space or other creative project, although it is not clear precisely how many planes are re-used this way.
    While Campbell has created a website with details on rebuilding planes, he is not the only one with such a vision as aircrafts have been made into homes in Texas, Costa Rica and the Netherlands.
    Taking it one step further, there is an airplane boat in Florida.

    Nice idea but it would've looked better inside if he could spend some money refurbishing the inside as it looks like shit.

    "Impart a near science fiction aura to an otherwise normal life". Translated-When I come out of the cockpit wearing my captains hat, I feel heroic when I assure the twelve real dolls sitting in first class that everything is going to be alright.

    Exactly, it's just stupid and I would think dangerous in case of earthquakes, I don't think it's in Tornado or Hurricane prone area but if it is your home is flying away. :D I would look at it out of curiosity, but it's bizarre. It's a bad mobile home with wings.

    I've never sat in a plane and said, "Wow, it would be awesome if I could live inside this thing."
