Ever dreamt of sleeping in a Boeing 747?

It´s becoming reality! Oscar Dios, a Swede with a wacky idea: Park a retired Boeing 747 outside the Stockholm airport - call it Jumbo Hostel - and turn it into motel for the budget-minded traveler.

Maybe it´s a Swedish thing to turn transportation into hostels. A few years ago I slept at a train hostel in Sweden - not very comfortable if any should wonder.
When it comes to transportation and the use of it i got to think of 727 - a Danish advertising agency - that bought a retired 727 and turned it into their head office. They got plenty of PR on that stunt.
