Along with the telephone and the automobile, airplanes are undoubtedly one of humankind’s’most significant inventions. And in an era of low-cost airlines, we can see more of the world than previous generations could ever have dreamed of.

However, while the aeronautical ingenuity of these transportation behemoths is certainly a cause for celebration, some people have taken it upon themselves to purchase old aeroplanes and transform them into actual living spaces.

From homes and hotels to cool restaurants and hangout spots, these awe-inspiring aeroplane conversions are the stuff of dreams. Read on below as we list 30 of the best.

1. Plane House, Miziara, Lebanon

Starting things off on this crazy list is a Lebanese couple who took their love of aviation and put it to more domestic use by converting this enormous plane into their dream home in their hometown of Miziara.

While the couple has since relocated to Australia, the Airbus A380 home has 41 portholes on both sides, allowing for a breathtaking view of the mountainous climate. In a land as fabled as the Middle East, this customized piece of automotive ingenuity is certainly a showstopper that holds its own in one of the most wondrous areas of the world.

2. Bruce Campbell’s Awesome Home

If you’re going to convert an airplane into a house, it helps if you’re an engineer like Bruce Campbell. Bruce could never stand old jets not being reused so did something about it and resorted a Boeing 727. He then moved into it when he finished renovating it.

Bruce parted with 100k for the worn-out jet in 1999 and invested a further 120k on renovations which include a series of cool lights and switches. There’s also a working toilet, shower, washer, and dryer. Believe it or not, he is currently saving up for another plane. Some people really do have too much time and money on their hands!

3. Howard Hughes’s Cosmic Muffin

This sounds totally silly but the “Cosmic Muffin” is far from a novelty act- it’s the real deal. The intriguing backstory is equally as compelling. Once owned by visionary automotive genius Howard Hughes the Boeing B – 307 was his pride and joy until it was deemed unsafe to fly in 1969.

But Fort Lauderdale dealer Kenneth W. London gave it a new lease of life and transformed it into an incredible houseboat. Jimmy Buffet even gave the boat a nod when he mentioned it in his song”Desdemona’s Building a Rocket Ship.”

4. Jumbo Hostel

Located in the Swedish capital Stockholm, Hotel Arlanda promises its customers a “Jumbo Stay.” A former Boeing 747, 33 rooms with sufficient legroom are available, each looking just as cozy as the next room.

Better still, Jumbo Stay is conveniently located just  100 feet from Stockholm-Arlanda airport. Not a bad layover if you ever find yourself in Stockholm.

Have you ever ate McDonald’s on a G4? Well, if you’ve ever eaten at the restaurant in Taupo, New Zealand, then you can say you have. Well, kind of. While it isn’t a g4, it is a cool, renovated DC 3 plane where staff give out wings to first-time diners.

The amazing structure was intially part of the Aero Plane Car Company until McDonald’s purchased the property, despite only being able to serve 20 customers a time.

Road legal, the Limo-Jet can sit up to 50 people and has a whole host of colorful lights and gadgets, with a monstrous V-8 engine assuring you a swift ride.

It makes sense to have an abandoned they’re usually as a prop for a paintball field as it adds authenticity to the battlefield. This amazing paintball site in Bedlam, Yorkshire, England certainly uses its rugged environment for good use.

Paintballing may sound silly to some, but it’s great fun, especially if the site has a real, frickin’ plane!

Travel to the modest city of Coventry, England, and you will find a renovated 1950s Douglas DC now serving as a restaurant. Since opening its doors, the unique eatery has proved a hit with locals. Located at Aviation Museum on the grounds of Coventry Airbase, visitors are allowed to visit the cockpit and are encouraged to use the passenger call button.

If that doesn’t sound like a great day out with the family, I don’t know what does!

9. Burning Man Festival Plane

One of the wackiest festivals in the world is an annual bohemian behemoth of all things unusual and free-spirited, two words which would no doubt be apt adjectives when describing this unusual aeroplane conversion.

When the great fire is lit, you can take in the sight by watching the spectacle in the comfort of the 747 jumbo jet which also serves as a nightclub and art exhibition. However, most festival-goers simply drink themselves into a febrile state of frenzy amidst the cool artwork and LEDs as the 100,000-pound aircraft gets pulled by an aircraft tug car. Pretty crazy, right?
