Most Unusual Use For An Aircraft?

Mon Mar 10, 2003 6:24 am

It has to be a fully functional and operating aircraft first off. Given that, what are some of the more unusual uses for an aircraft?

I found this one. It is an An-2 operated by a catholic association in Hungary, and it is used to perform aerial weddings.

I can see the service now:

Groom: I Jack, take you Jill, to be my wedded wife. To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish 'till death do us part or the aircraft falls apart.

A couple of days ago a company that owned a private cessena held a contest where a couple flew over his or her ex's house having sex. I thought that was pretty unusual.

Khalifa Airlines use their planes as toys which is unusual for a major,international airline flying with assets worth several billions of $!

Sex in an aircraft is as old as passenger airliners. There are dozens of companies around the world which specialise in selling aerial dinner and romp sessions. A couple of years ago, I know there was at least 2 such companies in the Los Angeles area alone.

Here's one use that was found for a CSA Il-18 (albeit retired) in Germany - a piece of playground equipment for children. I just happened to stumble across this pic while going through the most recent pics uploaded in A.net's database.

Ah yes, local radio station 100.7 WMMS's promotion, "Screw Over Your Ex."

To keep the pilot somewhat focused on flying, they put up a curtain for the couple's privacy.

How about this one: a gentleman strapped himself atop a DC-8 and called himself the "Human Fly."

One more:
A former Air India 707-337 (VT-D?? Annapoorna) was taken out of storage in Shannon to star in a Citroen automobile commercial. The car was fastened to the back of the venerable airliner with a specially constructed harness. The commercial was filmed sometime in the mid-1980s.

I saw a picture of a Shorts 360 being used for a storage shed.
