Hat tip to the Airline Reporter blog for finding and posting this cool time-lapsed video showing how a 747-8 gets painted. However and despite the fact that the Boeing 747-8 is one big aircraft that requires more than a few buckets worth of paint – it actually does not take that long to give it a good paint job.
The Jumbo Hostel at Stockholm airport is a real 747 converted into a hotel. How cool is that? I want to fly to Stockholm just to stay there. There are even two beds in the cockpit. (Hat tip and more photos: Inhabit.)
The hotel has 25 rooms with three bunk beds in each one. There is also a lounge. All the rooms have views out over the airport so it’s excellent for plane spotters and aviation enthusiasts.
There’s another disused 747 at Lelystad Aviodrome museum but you can only walk through it, not sleep in it. (See Lelystad Aerodrome review).
