A snowfall flattened Joe’s house to the ground. Despite being left without a roof over her head, the woman didn’t give up and managed to purchase the retired aircraft for next to nothing. She landed the airplane in the midst of a dense forest and relocated there to live, converting the ancient Boeing into an opulent, first-class hotel.
Joe Ussery took some time before deciding to purchase a whole jet. The woman hiked farther and away from the city in search of accommodation since she didn’t have enough money for even the most basic flat. Her brother-in-law, who was simply an air traffic controller, rushed to her aid.
He gave the American woman a suggestion that wasn’t the most obvious: purchase a retired Boeing rather than renting an apartment. Joe just had to pay $2,000 for the retired aircraft.
“The airline was gracious enough to send the jet, at their own expense, to the location I indicated. However, Joe told reporters, “I think they were just glad to get rid of the old junk metal.
The liner had to be rebuilt over a number of years. The Jacuzzi, a full kitchen with all the equipment and an oven were moved there, and the bathroom replaced the toilet cubicles. Luggage compartments were converted into capacious closets. The aircraft’s forward section was intentionally positioned exactly over the lake. Here is where the bedroom is, giving the impression of a genuine flight.
Joe added extra $30,000 to his budget for improvements, utilities, and renovating. And even the smallest apartment in a big city would cost far more than that.
Joe doesn’t intend to leave her special house. The widow started letting tourists in recently to supplement her income.
