Hi all. I am planning to purchase the a 747 upper deck lounge for a restaurant I am planning to set up. I would prefer a Pan Am lounge set up with sofas and captain chairs. Would any of you know the location of such an aircraft or any classic 747's about to be parted out?

You'll need to roll back the time machine there. Airlines dumped the upper deck lounge back in the early 1980s. Finding anything from that era will be very hard

I dont think you can cut just the top off, your going to half to get the cockpit and lower levels as well its all riveted to the innerskelton Pan am i Dont think your going to find one unless you redecorate it yourself but it would be kind of of a small dinner

Reminds me about the B 747SP that has been scrapped in Luxembourg in 2002:

Hugo - I would contact someone at the Maxton, NC airport. I'm not entirely sure who the tenant is who specializes in aircraft part-out/reclamaiton but IIRC there are a few old ex-NW 747 classics there.

Another option would be Aeroturbine out of Miami (Opa Locka airport).

Thanks for the responses. I was able to recreate a 1980's clipper class cabin using only interior components- sidewalls, bins, a galley, a lavatory and seats with items purchase from Evergreen in Marana. It came out great. I just wanted to know where the alternative sources may be.
