Bruce Campbell's Airplane Home In Oregon (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A self-professed 62-year-old nerd has turned a 727-200 passenger jet into his home in Oregon. Bruce Campbell even created a website, AirplaneHome.com, for his $200,000 ($100,000 to buy it, $100,000 for installation) new "mobile" home.

Campbell took CNN on a tour of his unusual digs, showing the "small" but workable shower and his decks -- the wings of the former aircraft.

If Campbell has that kind of money, why live in an airplane? They are “well designed, high tech, aerospace quality sealed pressure canisters that can withstand 575 mph winds and seven G acceleration forces with ease, could last for centuries (with effective corrosion control), are highly fire resistant, and provide superior security. They’re among the finest structures that mankind has ever built," he says on his site.
