One of the stranger sights of a recent trip to Oregon was this intact 727 parked in the woods.  The aircraft’s owner, Bruce Campbell, lives part-time in the airliner after purchasing the plane in 1999 for $100,000 and slowly converting it into a home.  The wings were sawn off and the tail removed for the transport to this location, then re-assembled.  This ex-Olympic Airways 727 was the very aircraft that flew shipping tycoon (and Olympic Airways owner) Aristotle Onassis’s body home to Greece for burial.  Olympic operated ten of these three-holers in their fleet beginning in 1968.  The only Boeing trijet, the 727 first flew in 1963 with more than 1,800 produced from 1962-84.  Fuji X-E2s w/18-135mm.
