I have seen some crazy houses made out of some very unique materials, but I think this one tops the cake. It is very rare that you come across an airplane in any other place other than the sky or the airport. Seeing these airplanes would definitely make you do a double take. The reason is because these planes are located in some very strange areas. They were not involved in a plane crash or anything. These planes were converted to be used as something other than a flying transportation vessel. Here are some extremely unique places that use an airplane as their focal point. Some of them are airplane houses, some are airplane bars, but the one thing they have in common is that they’re all awesome!
Boeing 727 House, located in Costa Rica.
You can check into this house, too – this is part of the spectacular Costa Verde Resort.
The interior is nice and cozy too.
Looks extremely warm and inviting.
And the view, well is amazing.
Another Boeing 727 fuselage turned into a cost-effective and energy-efficient house: Jo Ann Ussery’s estate at Benoit, Lake Whittington, Mississippi, USA.
An old Bristol freighter plane converted to “bed and breakfast” – in Otorohanga, New Zealand.
Red Lane’s DC-8 home (originally built for Eastern Airlines in 1960) – now resides in Ashland City, Tenn.
Using wings and other parts of an airplane as very structurally sound and efficient components of a house.

It certainly does not seem like a plane in there.
And it is located next to a runway, so perfect for travelers.
Yet very modern.
I don’t think they would have any complaints.
Runway Dreams in Stockholm
It’s a retrofitted 747-200 at the Stockholm-Arlanda airport
Rated “Best Hotel Novelty of the Year”
Again, does not seem like a hotel to me.
An old Soviet plane, transformed into a bar in Olomouc, Czech Republic

Flannery’s Restaurant in Penndel, Pennsylvania
Air Restaurant Tupolev TU-104 in Petrovice, Czech Republic
Lufthansa Vickers Viscount 814 Restaurant in Langenhagen, Germany
I love the uniqueness of all of these. I would for sure stay at one of those plane hotels too. How much fun would it be to dance around in a C-97 dance club? I wonder who I would talk to about finding one of these airplane houses or possibly building one of my own. Does anyone have an old airplane for sale? Must be cheap.
