You can only do this in five airports across the globe where they have made used of aircrafts which can no longer fly and converted them into bars.

Here are the best airport bars made of airplanes:

DC6 Diner (England)

This funky resto-bar can be found at the Coventry Airport in England. The old Douglas DC-6 can accommodate 40 diners. So if you are craving for a good steak after a long trip, this is a nice place to visit once you touchdown. If you want some cocktails, you can head to the cockpit of the airplane and the bar tender will be more than gland to mix you a refreshing blend. Coventry is not a very busy airport and a lot of people tend to use Birmingham more. If you are coming in from Birmingham, you just need a ride to cruise along the A45 and you will be able to see the DC6.
