Helicopter converted into holiday pad at ex RAF bombing site
An old Westland Lynx helicopter has been transformed into holiday accommodation.
The aircraft is based on the site of the former RAF Wainfleet bombing range in Lincolnshire.
Owner Will Roughton said the accommodation, which comes with a TV and mini fridge, was attracting a lot of interest from all ages.
He said he was now considering buying a tank which could be driven during the day and slept in at night.
His latest project "took off" after he found an old helicopter for sale in Ipswich.
He said his idea had been a hit with all ages, despite it being "mainly for the kids".
"I thought it was just my immature mind but seemingly not," he said.

The farmer said his next project would involve a tank and possibly "a DVLA course to add a tank to your driving licence".
He is also considering converting a World War Two fire engine.
The RAF Wainfleet bombing range, which closed in 2009, opened to aircraft in 1938 and was used throughout World War Two.
Before then, it had been used by Army artillery regiments as far back as 1890.
