Always wanted to stay in a decommissioned Boeing 737 jumbo jet? Well, soon you’ll be able to do it in pure luxury at the Private Jet Villa by Hanging Gardens Air. It is being built by entrepreneur Felix Demin who purchased the aircraft from former Indonesian airline Mandala Air. He has been working on it since 2021 and could be months away from opening up the villa in Bali.
The last production Boeing 747 airplane has left the Everett factory ahead of its delivery to Atlas Air in early 2023. Production of this jumbo jet first began in 1967 and lasted for 54-years, where a total of 1,574 aircraft were built. Measuring 250.2-feet (76.2-meters), the 747-7 is the longest commercial aircraft currently in service.
British designer Mark Berryman typically works on yachts, but his latest project takes to the skies, literally. This luxury private jet interior not only has a zen-like bedroom, complete with floor accent lighting, but just about everything you’d expect from a penthouse suite.
It’s official, the sixth mission of the Boeing X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV-6) is set to be launched on May 16 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida by the Department of the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office in partnership with the U.S. Space Force. No details about the mission were mentioned, but it aims to test new systems in space and return them to Earth to help the U.S. more efficiently and effectively develop space capabilities necessary to maintain superiority in the space domain.

Hotel Costa Verde, located in Manuel Antonio National Park, Quepos, Costa Rica, has one of the most unique accommodations you probably never knew about. This Boeing 727 didn’t crash land in the jungle, but rather is an old fuselage that was refurbished into a suite of sorts. Should you be lucky enough to stay here, there’s also a restaurant housed in another plane, a “Cockpit Cottage” made from an Aéropostale aircraft, and a railroad car restaurant.
