Project Freedom began April 1st 2011. The original idea came from a show called "The Magician" in 1973 with Bill Bixby. Bill was a playboy philanthropist who used his magician skills to solve difficult crimes.  He used his Boeing 720 jetliner as a base of  operations; it was outfitted as a mobile residence.  At the end of the show he would drive his corvette into the back of the airplane and take off. The license plate was labeled "SPIRIT".

Below are a few pictures of the progress of the plane home I am building. I will have two airplanes. The MD-80 (labeled Freedom) of which is the first 60 feet will provide living quarters for friends and family to use while visiting.  It has a master bedroom, bathroom and kitchen with a sitting area. The second airplane a DC-9-41 (labeled Spirit) will include a theater, music, arts and crafts room as well as the bedrooms, bathroom and gourmet kitchen. Only one picture of the interior will be shown on the web page. If you would like to see more pictures please email me.  jaxline @ fsicorp.com

As of November 24, 2012 I have moved into the airplane.  During the day there are lots of airplanes coming and going. At night its calm and peaceful with lots of stars above.
