He Described proudly the plane as a ‘bird that’s meant to fly’.
With the passenger chairs ripped out of the main cabin there is plenty of room for Campbell’s possessions – cardboard boxes waiting to be unpacked are stacked throughout the room.
Clearly excited to be showing visitors around, Campbell says the prospect of living in the plane full-time ‘exhilarates' him.
Campbell is still tinkering with it but one of the aircraft's three toilets is already up and running.
'It's small but I'm small', he says, peeking into the functioning restroom.
Furthermore, he has installed a temporary shower within the main cabin of the plane.
Campbell concedes the shower doesn’t afford much privacy but points out that if you live in the middle of the woods that isn’t a pressing concern.
Lighting up with glee, Campbell ushers his guests into the space he describes as his ‘favourite playroom’: the cockpit.
And in warmer weather, the aircraft’s wings make for great decks - easily accessed through the emergency exits.
Campbell has had some visitors to his bizarre bolthole and, he says, some have fallen in love with it.
There is no radio or TV in the plane but an iPod touch provides music as Campbell potters away creating his new home.
‘It’s not for everybody. But I think it is for a lot of people and it is definitely for me. I absolutely love it,’ says Campbell as he concludes his tour.
