Bruce believes old planes should be turned into homes
The old man believes all old planes should be made into homes to prevent them from being wasted.
In his words:
"Shedding a beautiful and scintillating jetliner is a tragedy in waste, and a profound waste of human imagination."
People react to the look of the aeroplane
Andrew Breckon commented:
"Great idea, but it cost a total of 220k and not to mention you need a huge chunk of land to put it on. It's not exactly beautiful or affordable plus the interior is awful."
Kathleen Ketchell wrote:
"Great concept but I would clear those trees from around that plane where I'm from we back burn so properties don't burn down when it's summer saves a lot of homes this way."
Sylvana Rodriguez opined:
"This is not the best idea. Depending where you put the plane. In Arizona it will last forever but if it is placed in a tropical area kiss it good bye. Not convenient at all. I have seen school buses remodeled better than this. It doesn't even look like a home inside. This guy is single. A woman would not tolerate this."
Alan Smolin thought:
"He spent 1/4 million just to buy it and get it there. Could've built a nice cabin or home appropriate for the woods. The plane Could've been dismantled for scrap if he's so worried about recycling. Illogical but to each his own."
