“The Cosmic Muffin”


The Cosmic Muffin is the most unusual plane-boat, made out of the historic and rare aircraft the Boeing 307 Stratoliner. It was originally owned by the aviation pioneer Howard Hughes. He acquired the plane in 1939 named “The Flying Penthouse”as part of his purchase of TWA. David R. Drimmer and his company Planeboatshas extensively remodeled and rebuilt it. They named it “the CosmicMuffin” – a dream-boat from Jimmy Buffett’s novel.
