    Default Engineer transforms retired passenger jet into dream home

    Living the high life: Engineer transforms retired passenger jet into 'dream home' in the Oregon woods




    Engineer Bruce Campbell is living the high life after converting a retired passenger jet into his dream home.


    The 62-year-old bought the Boeing 727-200 for around $100,000 and spent a decade turning it into his abode.



    Tucked away in the woods of Oregon, the aircraft Mr Campbell describes as 'a bird that's meant to fly' has all modern conveniences but he says his 'favourite playroom' is the cockpit.

    Can't say much for his decorating skills.

    As long as he's happy.

    The colours and the style of that Y make me think this was an Olympic Airways jet. State company of my childhood. Half the time they were striking, the other half they were late as hell and I'm pretty sure they had the worst service in the world. Good to see one of their planes put to good use cause they certainly never did much flying.

    The company is private now and it's called Olympic Air. It's 100 times better and I have flown them many times and recommend them.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    The interior reminds me of the renovated school bus we had as a camper back about 18 years ago. Fun for camping with three kids, not for everyday living.

    This could've been much cooler than it really is.

    There was a woman in Mississippi who lived in a Boeing 727 and it was SO much cooler than this dump. She had a hot tub in the cockpit and her decorating skills were on point. I remember seeing her on David Letterman way back in 1994.

    Well, he certainly has the decorating skills and artistic sensibility one would expect from an engineer...
