Bed Made Out of Airplane Parts

Sarah B. sends along a link to the Mile High Bed.

Now, I’m personally very happy with my W bed. And I’m more a miles and points guy than an aviation junkie. When I get off the plane and get home, I want to be off the plane.

Still, the description in Sarah’s email was intriguing:

Lately, you’ve been feeling that your bedroom is missing something.

Like an airplane.

Perhaps attached to a California King mattress.

.. If any guests—or as you’ll now call them, passengers—are making their maiden voyage, you’ll want to give them a quick in-flight demonstration on how to sleep first class. You’ll explain to them that on the left and right are the repurposed wings of a DC-9 jet, and the headboard at the rear of the craft is made from a decommissioned C-130 military gunship. Which pretty much gives you license to use whatever “ready for takeoff” jokes you want.
