A Boeing 747, which was built for Pan Am and eventually retired from service with Tower Air is now being turned into a house.  The jumbo jet was the 28th built and parts of it have been airlifted to the top of a mountain in Mailbu, California where they are being integrated into the construction of what eventually will be a Green home according to a report from Fox News.  Designers say the aluminum make-up of the aircraft components are key to achieving the environmental goals of the home.

And now we have a Boeing 307 Stratoliner turned into a boat.

Scroll down just a little.
