Didn’t get a chance to snag your spot on the Goodyear blimp? Airbnb is offering the next best thing.

The company has put together a list of a handful of aircraft listings, including everything from a helicopter in the U.K. to a full-size plane in France. So if you’re feeling an international vacation coming on, consider booking one of these retrofitted crafts for your next adventure.

Although built in the ’70s, this first-class plane still retains most of the original features. The crash-landed craft features half a bathroom (with a shower and running hot water), and even has an Xbox with some flight games in the cockpit. We’re serious.
