Jo Ann’s exceptional home has inspired others. In the late 1990s, Bruce Campbell, an electrical engineer with a personal pilot license, heard her story and embarked on his own project. To date, he has lived in his own Boeing 727 for more than 20 years, in the woods of Hillsboro, Oregon.

The total cost he spent on buying and renovating the plane was 220.000 USDequivalent 380.000 USD Today, half of that is money for airplanes. However, this is a model with an old-fashioned interior, which is quite bad compared to the modern ones, so it took him several years to perfect before he could live in it. Previously, during the harshest part of winter, Campbell would go to Miyazaki, a city in southern Japan, where he had a small apartment. However, the pandemic occurred, and for three years, he was completely in this plane.

Costing less than half a million dollars for the entire project, Axline is now fully equipped in a spacious space, with a bedroom, living room, bathroom and toilet. However, the window could not be opened, so if he wanted fresh air, he had to go to the door.
