Scottish make-up artist converts old plane into beauty salon
Make-up artist Amber Scott is hoping her new business really takes off.
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.
Amber, who has travelled to New York and LA to learn her trade, said she can’t wait to welcome her first clients on board.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.
It cost £20,000 to transport it to Scotland by road and the couple planned to spend £100,000 converting it into a £400-a-night B&B.
Some of the original features of the cockpit have been retained in the refitted plane, which has a 92ft wingspan.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.
10 Things We Learned From WWE WrestleMania 35 (public)
For the fourth consecutive year, WWE produced a WrestleMania that, from the beginning of the Kickoff show to the final fade-out, lasted about as long as a state funeral. This isn’t to say that WrestleMania 35 was soul-crushingly bad or anything because, on the whole, it was not. Only *parts* of it gnawed at one’s state of wellness like so many ravenous ferrets.
On the whole, I’d call WrestleMania 35 a solid C+: some really-high highs (Kofi Kingston’s big moment), some really-low lows (Batista demonstrating the coordination and stamina of a recently-unthawed iceman), a lot of stuff we won’t remember in three days, but some pretty good matches otherwise. I’d say that in this era of eternal WrestleManias, 35 edges out 33 and obliterates 32, but I’d say 34 tops it on overall match quality and fun. Sunday night’s show cruised along well enough for a while, but when it hit that wall, it hit that wall with a crunch.

Jim Ross Claims AEW Has Cable TV Home, Will Debut In October (public and action)
The mystery of All Elite Wrestling’s would-be television deal is an ongoing one. Tony Khan, Cody Rhodes, and others have made reference to negotiations and offers over the past several months, and while the vibe is that there will be a TV broadcast of some variety, nothing concrete has been announced.
Jim Ross, who recently signed a three-year deal with AEW to work in both broadcasting and advisory capacities, appeared on Chris Carlin’s WFAN radio show to discuss his new employer. Talk of AEW’s television prospects came up and, while Ross didn’t give all of the specifics, he did speak of the show as though it were a certainty.

On a night where some moron attacked Bret Hart during his Hall of Fame induction speech (for which he was subsequently beaten by various WWE personnel), a different kind of gatecrashing has taken place across the way at Madison Square Garden.
At G1 Supercard, Enzo Amore and Big Cass jumped the rail at the conclusion of a four way tag team match for both the IWGP and ROH World Tag Team titles. The former WWE duo got into a physical altercation with several wrestlers, including Bully Ray, who was not a part of the match.
