After serving as a restaurant for the past 15 years a German airplane from the 1960s is getting a third life as a luxury hotel suite for two. Located at Teuge airport in the Netherlands, what used to hold 120 passengers is now grounded and provides amenities for two such as crisp white interiors, a jacuzzi, sauna, a Blue Ray player, 3 flat screen tvs, and a hostess that's available 24/7. The cockpit has been left untouched for a dash of excitement and history, and parachute jumps and stunt plane rides are also available (via a different plane, of course) for the even more daring. The cost is €350/night for a single couple, which includes a full breakfast.
This isn't the first time we've seen an airplane pressed into service as a hotel. In Stockholm, a 747 has been turned into the Jumbo Hostel and in Costa Rica, a 727 fuselage makes a unique luxury suite.
