A large Boeing 737 saved from the scrapyard is about to take off as a party venue in the city.
It emerged earlier this month that the fuselage of the plane, which spent its 24-year career flying for Air France and Siberian Airways, had fallen into the unlikely hands of Glasgow go-karting and leisure centre The Experience.
Now, the full front of the craft, from nose to cabin, has been attached onto the side of the Hillington-based business.
Salvaged by a professional team based at Cotswold Airport, the 40ft long section travelled up the motorway last week and is now berthed at its new Scottish home.
Thanks to special planning permission granted by Renfrewshire Council, work will begin to transform the plane into a fully functioning party pad, complete with seating area, bar, a light-up cockpit, sliding airlock doors and even a large departure lounge.
Management also have plans to run themed events, where the aircraft 'flies' to different destinations with set food and drinks on offer from different countries.
As Mike Edwin, the General Manager, said: "We think this will be a fun space for people to come and use. Whether it’s for a kids party, themed nights or as a conference venue, there really is nowhere else quite like it in Glasgow.
"Now that the jet is in place, we will be working hard to get everything ready. Once the refurbishment is completed we will have the authentic ‘Departure Lounge’ experience where your imagination can fly you anywhere.
"We have already taken our first booking for early next year!"
Based in Hillington Park, The Experience is a themed entertainment and events venue housing Scotland’s only indoor electric Go-karting Arena.
Operating as a social enterprise, the project was set up to provide employment and life-skills opportunities for young people in Glasgow and surrounding areas.
A provisional opening ceremony for the party plane is set to be held in February 2016.
