I bought an old Boeing 777 – I’m turning it into my dream luxury home… and it has a secret hidden room | The Sun

A WOMAN has shared how she is converting an old Boeing 777 into a luxury home – with a hidden secret room.

TikToker Carla Cary bought the decommissioned  Etihad Airways plane and launched her project to turn it into her dream home.

Carla, from California, bought the 777-200LR plane dubbed the "world's largest commercial twin-jet" in June 2020 and is expected to complete it by early 2024.

She has been sharing her journey on social media, showing how she strips the aircraft off its parts revealing its interior.

In one of her clips, she says: "I'm taking a decommissioned Boeing 777 and turning it into a unique and sustainable residence.

"I'll be turning the world's largest commercial twin jet into something fresh and new. Instead of letting this plane get scrapped and destroyed we'll give it a new life!."

Sharing her progress, Carla shows how the plane has been transformed already as passenger seats, toilets and even a part of the cockpit have been removed.

She gives a tour of the inside of the plane before the renovation, going through first class, business class, economy plus and economy.

"You can really see here the difference it makes without the overhead bins, it's so much roomier," she says.

In her most-watched clip, she reveals a secret compartment most flyers don't know about.

She says it's a "crew rest secret room" and asks her followers "Did you guys know this existed?"

She explains:"So crew rest is what you see in the orange, so normally this is covered by overhead bins and ceiling panels.

"And no one really knows it's there. But flight attendants and crew members use this to sleep on really long flights.

"To get into the door it's usually blocked by a keycode, but because this is a decommissioned plane and we can do whatever we want, we'lljust override that.

"Then you take out these steep stairs and you can see… there's bunks and seats and just kind of a relaxation area. Really cool."

The TikToker also warned passengers against attempting to enter the crew rest area saying"you'll be detained and arrested. It could result in fines up to 250k and 20 years in prison."

Her followers praised her for her unique project and were thankful for revealing the well-hidden secret.

One commented: "So that’s not “turbulence” above me."
