She realised that she was in love, when she boarded her first 737-800. "I got so excited with boarding the plane, I realised I am in love with it." Years later, Michele finally got to spend some quality time alone with her "lover", in an airport hangar.

"The first time we really met on May 1, 2019, I enjoyed every millisecond with him," she recalled. She, however, says that it's not easy to spend quality time with her "boyfriend". "A relationship with a plane can be difficult. I can only get close to him when I fly with him or when I can get to him in the hangar, which has only happened once in my life."

But, she has found different ways to indulge in her affection. "I have a big model of him made of fibreglass as well as real components from him so I can act out my love to some degree." Her Facebook profile has pictures of her kissing the 737-800 and cuddling its doors and panels. Her ultimate dream is to be able to marry her darling.

Michele says she's been in love with the aircraft for five years and she can't get enough of the huge flying machine.

She said: "The 737-800 is very attractive and sexy to me. He's the most beautifully built, and he's a very attractive and elegant aircraft."

The lovebird even nicknamed the 737-800 "schatz" which translates to "darling".

But Michele has revealed the struggled of the relationship.

She said: "A relationship with a plane is not easy and at times difficult.

"I can only get close to him when I fly with him or when I can get to him in the hangar, which has only happened once in my life.

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.

However, she has found different ways to indulge in her affection.

She said: "I have a big model of him made of fibreglass as well as real components from him so I can act out my love to some degree."

She showed BTV various pictures of her kissing the 737-800 and cuddling with components such as doors and panels.

Michele's affection for the aeroplane is known as objectophilia --- when sexual or romantic attraction is focused on a particular inanimate object.

But Michele doesn't see the physical side of her relationship with the Boeing as any different to with humans.

My cheeks hurt from smiling, I'm the happiest woman in the world --- when I'm with him I have everything I need. When I touch his wings, I get immediately sweaty palms and get excited

She explained: "It's like a normal relationship, we have relaxing evenings together and when we go to bed, we cuddle and fall asleep together."

Michele realised she had a weakness for aeroplanes when she took her first flight in November 2013.

In March 2014 she boarded her first 737-800 and it was love at first flight.

She said: "I got so excited with boarding the plane, I realised I am in love with the 737-800."

"The first time we really met was the May 1, 2019, I enjoyed every millisecond with him.
