Woman Turns Boeing Plane Into Fully Functional Home

In the rising trend of unconventional homes like buses and shipping containers, Jo Ann Ussery’s transformation of a decommissioned Boeing 727 into a mansion stands out. After her house in Benoit, Mississippi was destroyed in 1993, financial constraints led her to consider alternative living options. Her brother-in-law, an air traffic controller, proposed living in an airplane.

Acquiring the Boeing 727 for $2,000, Ussery invested around $30,000 to turn the plane into a luxurious abode. The revamped 138-foot interior included three bedrooms, a kitchen, a living area, and a laundry room. Remarkably, the cockpit became a master bathroom with a soaking tub, offering a feeling of floating midair.

Ussery lived in her airplane home from 1995 to 1999, later converting it into a museum. However, a transport mishap severely damaged the plane. Still, Ussery’s inventive residence remains an inspiring testament to creativity and resilience.
