If you could have a plane as your house then what type of plane would it be?, would it be attached to a pole and be off the ground, or even over a lake?

I would have an B744 with an extended upper floor and all the bedrooms would be on the top floor with the guest bedroom in the cockpit so the guests can enjoy the view from all the big windows in the cockpit. The guest bedroom and the master bedroom would have an ensuite with big double beds. There would also be 2 other bedrooms on the upper deck and a restroom. The main deck would have another restroom and a bathroom, nice big living area, the right side wing would be the deck with very nice deck chairs, leather sofas, 6 first class seats with full entertainment (like on the Emirates A345s), There would also be a huge plasma screen in the living room, nice entrance foyer, laundry would be at the back of the plane (house), games room. The plane (house) would be over a lake. The house would be painted blue

The 777. With PTV's, personal air-conditioning, a pressurized home, and a cabin as wide as two master bedrooms, and as long as two houses who could ask for anything more? However I would be just as happy with a 744. Either way, to get anywhere, I wouldn't even have to leave my house, and if I had to get from St. Louis to Chicago, I could go there in 45 minutes. Snap! Big thumbs up

I'd go with an L-1011 with the tail parked over a lake. This way, you could use the #2 S-duct intake for an awesome slide!!  Big thumbs up

I second the L-1011. Maybe the DC-10. It'd have to have the engine nacelles intact, though. I don't want to live in a long, ugly tube.

I think I would repaint mine in a classic livery every year. Maybe Continental's meatball this year, Eastern's hockey-stick next. I'd love to paint one in Hawaiian's new scheme... that'd be beautiful.

Boeing Nut,

I'd always had that idea too - was discussing the very thing today actually at work with someone !!!

I'd have the forward cargo hold as my garage with a ramp upto it, and a sun deck on the wings and the rear cargo hold as the kitchen so I could have the bedrooms and living room on the main deck. Would have to have the f/deck wired up to FS too - goes without saying !!!.

I'd have to go for the L1011, I've met the guys in Greenwood who own that Ex-United 727-122 when I drove up there. They have it fitted out VERY NICE. Ah, you can't beat an Airplane Hunting Lodge

Although the Boeing 307 Stratoliner would be my choice for a plane on a lake, on terra firma I would go with one of these:

The squared off fuselage and two stories wpuld make for a very comfortable home indeed. However, the Breguet 763 would hardly win any beauty contest. For a vacation home, I would forgo the practical in favor of a sexier shape, probably a Connie.

Mine would have to be the 747-400. Just for the upper deck. The upper deck would be the master bedroom. I would have to add a A319 for the "shed" out back.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Lockheed L-1011. I would have a few beds, some leather couches , a couple whirlpools, oversize luxury lavatories, DirecTV, Online access, full food service. I would convert F/C to something very similiar to Delta's Biz Elite, then put my stuff listed above in the lower galley if possible. I would take some of the main cabin seats out and put the couches their.

I would like it to be like a house, but still have that airplane feel.
