The 25-year-old has an old aeroplane into a salon.

The Air Atlantique G-Conv plane has been lying around her parents’ garden centre in Carluke, Lanarkshire, for 10 years after their plan to use it as an upmarket B&B failed to get off the ground.

She said: “It’s definitely unusual. I don’t know of anyone who gets given a plane. I’m very lucky.”

Andrew and Tricia Scott bought the 60-year-old aircraft a decade ago for £25,000 after spotting it at Coventry Airport.

Now it will be been given a new lease of life when Amber launches her make-up studio today.

Amber, who trained at Clydebank College, said: “The plane was sitting empty and I was joking with my parents saying it would make a great salon if you put a H in front of Air Atlantique. Then we came up with the idea of using it as my studio.

“My parents are glad to see it being put to good use.”
