A 30-year-old woman claims to be in love with an aeroplane and wants to marry it. The smitten woman says she’s been in a five-year relationship with the plane.
Michele Köbke from Berlin in Germany claims to be dating a Boeing 737-800 passenger jet and even refers to it as “darling”. Speaking to Sun UK, the woman said she finds the plane attractive. However, Michele admitted that being in a relationship with the flying machine can be quite difficult at times.
“I want to marry my sweetheart and live with him in a hangar – it’s just a special kind of love that doesn’t hurt anybody.”
She realised her love for planes when she took her first flight in 2013. The next year she boarded a 737-800 and it was love at first sight. She says the plane is everything she needs and keeps her happy.
According to experts, Michele suffers from objectophilia, a condition in which a person has a romantic attraction to inanimate objects.
This came after continuous pressure from her family to settle with a good man. The event occurred on her 32nd birthday in the Kampala, the capital of Uganda, on her visit home.
