WTF Product of the Day, Volume 13: The Mile-High Bed

Take a look at the bed pictured below, and you should see two things that immediately appeal to the average man:

(The correct answer is not “boobies.”)

First, of course, there is a very pretty lady. I assume that she does not come standard with the bed, though who really knows?

Second, the bed is made from an airplane. That’s right: an airplane. Specifically, “two DC-9 rear stabilizers and a C-130 inner flap.” I’m assuming that means something to the aviation enthusiasts among us.

The other pictures highlight another feature:

The bottom is lit. Because everybody loves sleeping in a red-lit room.

The mile-high bed feels like a joint invention of Hugh Hefner and Howard Hughes, amiright?

The only way to get pricing on the bed is to contact one of the manufacturer’s showrooms in Los Angeles, Maryland, or Italy. I think that means they’re quite reasonable.

And it’s not just beds. They got all sorts of furniture made from planes. It’s the next best thing to actually living in a plane. As someone who just flew 6 hours and back from DC to San Diego, I know that *I* wished the cramped conditions, shoebox bathroom, and constant turbulence could have lasted even. longer.

1 Fish in a Sea of Diet Coke:

It's a real shame that this little product wasn't introduced in the 80's as I can see it being a great backdrop for the big hair ballad bands like Whitesnake. Note : Tawny Kitaen would be included.
