Man Lives In Retired 727 Jet In The Oregon Woods

Whoa bro, watch your step!

This is electrical engineer Bruce Campbell's (HAIL TO THE KING, BABY) home. It's a retired Boeing 727-200 he parked on his wooded lot in Oregon. No word if he wears a oxygen mask during intercourse, but it would be a shame if he didn't try it at least once. Heck yeah, you just joined the 0.00378788 mile high club!

Campbell bought the plane back in 1999 for $100,000, and has spent the intervening years converting it to a modest living space. The plane-home features one working lavatory, a futon, a simple kitchen, and nine emergency exits. He estimates he has spent a total of $220,000 on the project.

It's kind of like a spaceship treehouse. I think that's a great idea and now i want one. Of course mine is going to need two lavatories because guests are NOT using my private shitter. I don't have many rules in life, but not having a friend rest his penis on my toilet seat because he's afraid it'll dip into the water is definitely one of them. I'm looking at you, Derek! We've changed together at the gym before, there's no way that thing is long enough to touch the water. "It is if it's hard." AND WHY ARE YOU GETTING HARD TO GO TO THE BATHROOM? "It feels different." It's like everyday your goal is to find new reasons for me to hate you. Seriously though, you keep that up and one day you won't be able to get boners anymore.

Keep going for a couple more shots and a worthwhile video.

Thanks to Sam S, who is holding out for a 747. Heck yeah, I call top floor!

There are Comments.
  • Looks like a "Dave"

    Seeing a plane sitting in the woods.....kind-of....creeps me out. Like...it's not supposed to be there. I think my subconscious still hasn't fully recovered from 9/11.

  • MustacheHam

    This is pretty cool..
    ...hmm...this inspires me on what to do with retired space ships. :D

  • Adam

    Do you have a surplus of retired spaceships?

  • dougfunnay

    retired lego spaceships for retired lego people

  • PLEASE NOTE THIS COMMENT HAS BEEN EDITED TO REMOVE A SNIDE REMARK THAT WAS COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY. The bottom half of this statement will remain intact due to the nature of the comments being a valid opinion.

    I hate to poohpooh this, but I guess its my overwhelming sense of practicality and function that makes this such a dumb idea to me. He spent 100's of 1000's of dollars on this project and to me it feels like a wasted opportunity of both resources, money and time.

    "I hate to poohpooh this..."

    No you don't, or else you fucking wouldn't.

  • That sir is a logical fallacy.

    I say I hate to because I don't relish being a killjoy or impinging on someones creative endeavors, but in this case I think that because of my own personal nature and the way I see things, that this is impractical.

    Having flown in one of these types of planes before and knowing the size restrictions of the interior and the limiting form factors I think this is a poor idea.

    I am using my own reasoning and preferences in my statements and I prefaced it with my dislike of poohpoohing the idea in general because its not my decision to embark on such an endeavor but I still think for the money invested, time needed and resources spent, that it is impractical.

    I never want to discourage someone being creative and following their dream, but the statement I made was an opinion and one I stand by.

    I thought I was clear and succinct in stating my OPINION. You have ever right to disagree, but I'm telling you flatly you are wrong.

    Just because I don't like something doesn't mean its wrong, but that doesn't preclude me from sharing my opinion.

    "I wanna bungie jump"
    "I think that's a bad idea"
    "Fuck you, I'm doing it anyway"
    "Okay"

    That is essentially what I'm getting at, but you see it differently and that is your prerogative, but you're wrong.

  • Superior_Joe

    "I say I hate to..." because you're trying to kid yourself you're not an asshole. That's gotta be in the top ten shittiest things you can say to another human: "Your dream is dumb." You are an asshole.

    That's it, done with this thread. Bye.

  • How bout this, how bout I go back and edit my initial post because I will grant you that it was a bit harsh honestly.

    Regardless of my lack of tact in the matter at the start, I am entitled to my opinion just like you. You can continue to attack me and call me names all you want but that doesn't change anything.

    I never claimed I wasn't in the past or wont be in the future an asshole, I have made no such claim, but that doesn't change anything about what I said or that you are in fact being asshole right now.

    I've tried being equitable throughout, but you resorted to lowbrow mud slinging. Congrats and I'm glad you're done with this thread, but from the looks of things from your profile and the comments you leave among other threads, it seems that you have been and will continue to be the moral authority on things and in fact largely, resort to being an asshole yourself.

    I can sling mud also, good day. ;)

    These are railroad ties, not palettes. That said, there are other stabilizers holding the wing gear.
