A MAN has revealed why he converted an abandoned Boeing plane to live in – and that he has "no regrets".
Bruce Campbell, 73, has always been a fan of planes, and decided to live out his dream of living in one.
He told CNBC: "When I was a kid, my family and I were watching the news, and they showed file footage of one of the [plane] boneyards and I had no idea they existed, it was amazing to me.
"My jaw dropped and I thought 'that's incredible, there are thousands of them and they are just sitting there, why can't I have one?'"
Back in 1999, Bruce, an electrical engineer, found an abandoned Boeing 727 in Greece.
The plane used to be owned by shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, who was married to former First Lady Jackie Kennedy.

However, it was last used in 1975 to transport his remains after his death, and left unused ever since.
Bruce paid $100,000 (£82,990) for the plane, and then had to pay another $120,000 (£99,588) to fly it from Greece to Oregon, where he lives.
Many of the parts were stripped from it, including the engine so it can't fly.
He then spent another $15,000 (£12,448) renovating the 1,066sqft of space, which took two years, and has lived in it ever since.
