Vintage Airstreams serve as guest quarters at aerotrekking base

John McAfee (of anti-virus software fame), uses restored vintage Airstreams as guest quarters at his private aerotrekking base in Arizonia. Aerotrekking is a sport that uses ultralights to explore the wilderness at flying close to the ground. One of the Airstreams was apparently owned by Howard Hughes.

Here is a link to the news article:
Trek into Arizona wilderness - 15 feet off the ground

And a link to a web site that describes the base:
