A man in Nigeria built his wife a house that looks like a giant plane because she 'loves to travel'

1 month ago   |   By Business Insider

A man in Abuja, Nigeria built an unusual airplane-shaped house for his six children and wife who "loves to travel," according to Reuters.
The BBC reported that construction began in 1999 - and is still ongoing.
Rather than an airplane converted into a house, the home is made from concrete in the shape of a plane, and is on a complex that also includes a guest house, mosque, swimming pool, garden, and covered car port.
Said Jammal told the BBC he hopes the home will become a tourist attraction in Abuja.
