About two decades before, Bruce Campbell heard about Joanne Ussery, a hairdresser from Mississippi who bought a Boeing 727 and transformed it into her house. Her old home had burned down, and she decided to construct a functional house-plane at the edge of a peaceful lake. He had the idea before about the vans, but Campbell found an enormous airplane that seemed much more innovative and interesting to use. After all, he firmly believed that the planes should be saved from the junkyard. The land wasn’t a problem since he owned about four hectares, but he had to find the money to purchase and transport this type of unconventional vehicle all the way to Oregon.
