The Amazing Nigerian Plane-House!

I must admit, I was somewhat gob-smacked to see this building on the outskirts of Abuja, Nigeria, recently. At first glance, it almost looks as if an aeroplane has crashed into the roof of the house. On closer examination, however, it is clear to see that the house was built to look like this, presumably by someone who really likes planes!

Wish I’d had the chance/courage to stop and ask for a tour of the house – must be fascinating inside! Back home in England, I doubt such a building would get planning-permission…

We’re still chuckling over this one! Wonder if the ‘lady of the house’ served NA ‘meals’ off a trolly? And how much was demanded just to be allowed a seat in the lounge?! I can remember being sworn at at Murtala Moh. airport for refusing to give a bribe to ensure that I got a boarding pass!
