The sky's not the limit for college students at Ball State trying to find new ways to use old aircraft. An architecture professor has challenged students to imagine uses for thousands of derelict commercial aircraft parked in airplane graveyards around the country and the world. Among their ideas... a safe room fashioned frm Boeing 747 components that could be embedded inside a conventional home to provide shelter from tornadoes and severe storms... an entire house framed with 747 wing and fuselage segments... and a 'skybrary', a futuristic small-town library made out of parts of fuselage and wings, with an array of seats, shelves and other airplane pieces.
