They say that home is where the heart is, and various individuals have different ideas about what a perfect home should look like.
While most of us dream of large and comfortable houses with many bedrooms, a garden, and even a pool, other people enjoy living in unique and unconventional residences, such as retired engineer Bruce Campbell, who purchased a plane and converted it into a home.
Until the mid-1960s, the Boeing 727-200 served as a Greek aircraft. Later, Campbell discovered that Jackie Kennedy Onassis used the jet to transport her second husband, Aristotle Onassis, to his final resting place in March 1975. Aristotle died in France but was buried in Greece, where he was born.
The jet once belonged to Olympic Airlines, which was renamed Olympic Airways by Aristotle after he purchased the Greek national airline (then known as T.A.E.) in July 1956.
Campbell spent roughly $218,500 to convert the plane into a home. However, the interior does not resemble a typical house because he did his best to preserve most of the original plane’s equipment. He might study in the cockpit, for example.
Campbell purchased the plane and converted it into a home out of a wish to keep the aircraft from being scrapped.
“My goal in this little niche is to change humanity’s behavior,” Campbell told Greek Reporter.
Inside are two functional toilets, a functional temporary shower area, a living space, a desk, and a kitchen.
