YOU can spend the night in a converted army helicopter used by the British military.
The twin-engine Westland Lynx is the same make of military helicopters used during the 1990-1991 Gulf War.
The aircraft is known for its acrobatic flare and ability to perform loops and rolls in the air.
Now a special helicopter from 1982 has found a new purpose and offers comfortable accommodation to guests and tourists.
The unique Airbnb is located on a large “glamping” site in Preston, Lancashire.
It has been fully equipped to offer a unique camping experience.
While it looks like a prop from a movie set from the outside, the inside offers a quirky place to camp out with friends and family.
The Lynx Helicopter has a double bed in the “rear” of the aircraft and you can also accommodate two extra guests.
It also comes with a washer and dryer, running water, fridge and microwave, and a TV in the pilot’s cabin.
There are no onboard toilets, but there are shared toilets and showers on site.
The listing states that all beds are custom made, but for the ultimate glamping experience, visitors should bring their own sleeping bags, quilts, pillows and linens.
In summer you can make the most of the outdoor area with tables and chairs on the terrace.
There’s even an outdoor water park nearby where you can try paddle boarding and kayaking.
Prices on Airbnb start at £110 per night and go up to £27.50 per night.
It’s not the only helicopter in the UK where you can spend the night.
For £58 a night you can stay in a decommissioned Lynx helicopter that has previously served in Afghanistan.
Former RAF Wainfleet Army Helicopter features a sofa that converts into a bed, TV, underfloor heating and patio area.
You can also spend the night in a £5.4million helicopter that once flew with Prince William.
The Sea King 137 was used by Prince William during his three years as a search and rescue pilot in the Royal Air Force.
Located in Pinewood Park, Scarborough there is a double bed, two sets of bunk beds for children up to 13 years old and a bench seat which converts into a third child’s bed.
The pilot’s dashboard has been restored and is intact, so perfect for children.
And Fast & Furious fans can also stay in the helicopter used in one of the films in Suffolk, with the former army vehicle now being hired out for glamping.
Here are some other weird Airbnb rentals, including a lighthouse and a former train.
