Taking to the skies seems like a dream for many at the moment. But luckily there are places around the world where you can bed down in a decommissioned plane!
Located inside a Jumbo Jet which previously flew for Singapore Airlines and Pan-Am, the airplane opened as a hotel in 2009 close to Arlanda Stockholm Airport! There are affordable dorm beds, or if you're feeling fancy you can book the cockpit suite where the original flight controls have been preserved.

If you want to sleep in a quirky place in New Zealand Woodlyn Park is the place. Next to the Waitomo Glowworm caves (which i also recommend) this motel's accommodation includes hobbit caves, a ship, a train, and importantly for this list, a Bristol Freighter airplane which flew in the Vietnam War. They also host local hero Billy Black’s Kiwi Culture Show where you get a sheep-shearing, cow-riding, wood-chopping view of New Zealand life.

If you're going to sleep on a plane, surely you don't want to have to share with anyone else. This entire 40m plane in the Netherlands has been turned into a giant luxury suite complete with jacuzzi and sauna. And while it does cost €365/night yep you get the whole plane to yourself.
De Zanden 61b, 7395 PA Teuge, Netherlands
In Pembrokeshire Wales this "Glamping" (glamorous camping) site has a number of quirky places to stay including a UFO and a number of yurts. They also have not one but two planes! The Jetstar is a private jet built in the 70s, they also now have the fuselage of a former Etihad Airbus jetliner where you can lay down your head for the night.
