New Use for Old Airplanes

Around 700 airplanes are retired every year, usually after flying about 25 years. So what happens to them? About 80-85% of an airplane can be recycled, usually broken down and sorted into materials like glass, aluminum and steel.

Aeropods, a new company based in Ireland, came up with a creative way to adapt commercial jet parts – it turns them into customized offices, garden sheds and glamping units.

The exteriors, made of aluminum, are low maintenance and can be washed off with a hose. The walls and floors are insulated and there’s a built-in lift system to take it with you.
