Last year ROSEANNE interviewed a women called Jo Ann Ussery who lives in a Boeing 727 in Benoit, Mississippi. The aircraft was flown in to Greenwood, where her brother is an air traffic controller. The 727 was going to be dismantled there, but Jo Ann bought it for $2000 and had it moved on a flat-bed to her plot in Benoit at a cost of $4000, where she then turned it into a three-bedroomed home. She loves living in it and pointed out facts like it being 127ft long and that it has 99 windows, each with its own sun-shade and that the fuselage is insulated to -60.
I thought the idea of living in a plane is quite cool and was wondering what you guys think of the idea and if it appeals to you, what plane would you like to live in?
I like my space, so it would probably have to be a widebody for me and I would probably choose an old 747 preferably a -300 with the stretched upper deck. You would probably have a nice view from up there and what's the bet you could park your cars in the hold?
I'm convinced there will be a surplus of old retired 747's during the next decade. Could this be the start of a new trend?
I'm in, how about you?
Behind every "no" is a "yes"
