    Living in a Plane

    Not sure why this is so newsworthy, but I think living in a plane wouldn't be a big hardship.

    Not a bad idea. You're no longer just plain living when in one of these.

    A bit of a search on the net and you will find many old planes converted to homes or offices. The one above looks like pure class though. The trays should be just fine 5555

    Keep the landing gears working and convert them into a lift 55.

    Saw this last year on one of the unusual homes show on TV. I think the guy that owns it is an ex flight captain.

    Good recycling

    That looks like it is in a town or city Bri, hi rise in the background. You would normally expect a plane graveyard to be out the back of nowhere.
    Sad to see the way they are living but I guess it's no worse than a lot of the tin shed shanties.

    ^ think it's BKK.

    Looks cooler/better than the corrugated iron shacks left over from construction projects they usually live in.

    It is Bangkok, on the way out to Minburi, north of Airport. I have posted photos here before.

    Sorry i hadn't seen photo's before.

    Seems strange to have such a large vacant area in such close location to hi density. Normal town planning and development demand would have it used.
