This Abandoned Plane In Oregon Is Actually A Functional Home

Some of the most beautiful places in the world have fallen apart and crumbled over time. Whether they’ve been the victim of war, or simply taken over by Mother Nature, these global hot spots are truly awe inspiring in their destruction. Many of these abandoned beautifies are picturesque structures that once housed congregations and some are ships that transported supplies during the war.

However many of the photos on here show a less beautiful side of corrosion, with crumbling cars, and busted out villas that no one calls home. The places in these photos show a world that’s both mysterious and wrecked by the ravages of time. Scroll on and uncover the mystery of these abandoned areas.

From above this looks like nothing more than a downed Boeing 727. How did it crash so perfectly, in what circumstances does a plane like this stay together? It turns out that the plane actually doubles as a home to a man in Portland Oregon who lives in the converted 727 for six months out of the year every year since 1999.

The plane has water, electricity, and sewage, so it’s not like the owner is roughing it. The planes owner, Bruce Campbell (not that Bruce Campbell) told Atlas Obscura:

When properly executed, the remarkable appeal of a retired jetliner as a home springs from the magnificent technology and beauty of the sculptured structure itself. Jetliners are masterful works of aerospace science, and their superlative engineering grace is unmatched by any other structures people can live within. They’re incredibly strong, durable, and long lived. And they easily withstand any earthquake or storm.

Built in 1893, the Sheep Mountain Power House or Lost Horse Mill was constructed to use the force of the Crystal River in Colorado to power tools that were used to drill in to the Sheep Mount and Bear Mountain silver mines. Abandoned in 1917, the mill still intrigues viewers and brings in tourists from across the world.

Even though the mill is now a skeleton of its former self, it’s still a fantastic sight to behold. Wouldn’t it be a magical moment to watch the sun rise over the mill while you sip your morning coffee? Time to go to Colorado!
