- Not the Only One
Could you have guessed that Bruce is one of a handful of people around the world who have transformed a retired aircraft into a personal living space? That’s right, from Texas to Costa Rica to the Netherlands, you can find people living in airplanes. Martin Todd, a spokesperson from the Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (AFRA), said that his group “is happy to see aircraft fuselages re-purposed in a range of creative ways. We would want them to be recovered and to be re-used in an environmentally sustainable fashion.”
AFRA is a special-interest group that promotes sustainable practices when it comes to aircraft and their engines. Another spokesperson estimates that between 1,200 and 1,800 will be scrapped over the course of the next three years, whereas 500 to 600 will retire every year over the next 20 years. If we follow in Bruce Campbell’s footsteps, then these are all viable homes for people to live in!
