In Case of Emergency, Your Airplane Can Be Used as a Flotation Device

Unless you happen to be in a seaplane, if your airplane lands in the water, you’re probably in big trouble. The only other exception is if your airplane is actually an inflatable pool float, like this air-filled jumbo jet.

Unlike the floatation devices you find under your seat on an airplane, M Mark’s airplane float is big enough to hold up to seven people. That’s a far cry from the hundreds most jumbo jets can carry, but it’s way more than the average pool float too. Now you just need to find a swimming pool that’s big enough for this thing to land in. Perhaps a lake would be a better idea.

The floating airplane is made from heavy-gauge PVC, and should prove pretty seaworthy as long as you don’t carry any toothpicks, thumbtacks, or skewers in your swimsuit. While its $233 price tag might seem steep for a pool float, it’s way less than a round trip ticket from Chicago to the Bahamas these days.
