Two up in the air, two down? Couple spend £40,000 transforming the first floor of their terraced home into a Boeing 737 aeroplane and it has got so big they are moving it to an industrial unit
A couple who are obsessed with aeroplanes have spent £40,000 turning the upstairs of their terraced home into an exact replica of a Boeing 737.
Steve and Vicky Everson, from Bacup, Lancashire, transformed the first floor of their house into an aeroplane complete with a cockpit and flight deck.
Their passion for aviation started around five years ago after they redesigned the spare room at their former home in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, into a flight simulator.

He has different taste in women than me.
People are nuts, but they’re not hurting anyone.
The next day a guy named Muhammad Killahhh showed up looking for work as a butler.
Just goes to show there’s someone out there for everyone.
I wonder if their bathroom is the same size of one on a 737...?
Yes, and I probably shouldn’t have mentioned it, or not even thought it, but that one picture of her and her tattoo, is startling.
If it is, then one of them has a problem.
Humm...that's a understatement of major proportions !!!
In it, she imagines herself as a ballerina and a snowflake.
Unfortunately I haven't met mine yet......
Whoa. That Misses. Wonder if she has to pay for two seats?
“The couple are now opening up their dream indoor-aeroplane to members of the public who can be passengers and glide around the world without leaving the ground for as little as £75.

So, there are even nuttier people out there prepared to stump up 75 quid for the priviledge of sitting on a seat upstairs behind someone dressed in a pilots outfit playing a computer game?

Please ping me to aviation and aerospace articles. Thank you.
And when it comes time to sell? Who knows? - maybe an unsellable disaster, maybe people paying more for something unique.
Coupla wing nuts...
Hate to tell them but they could buy a scraped 737 fuselage for less than that (200 or a 300 for sure, maybe a 400).
They did all that, created a virtual 737 that does most everything but fly, for a measley 40K British Pounds? To me, that’s more of a wonder than the finished project. A mid-range automobile will set you back more than 40K.
Not sure about the “scraped” aspect, but that strikes me as an awful lot of pounds of aviation grade aluminum for a few hundred bucks. Ordinary scrap sheet aluminum is selling for around $0.77 per pound these days? How many tons does a 737 fuselage weigh? Hot dang! I’m going into the scrape business!
Wow, reading the story was a relief. From the headline I thought the couple might be the Obamas and the “home” was the White House.
Have they simulated the TSA to complete the flight experience?
Alien anal probe.
Don’t know if she paid for two seats but with this huge tattoo she could have saved on the Wedding Floral bill...ya think??
