Writing about boneyards usually is not my favorite exercise, but after that phenomenal neon sign boneyard in Las Vegas, I have to write about the Boneyard Project today!
Plane Graffiti on Abandoned Aircrafts
What started with a somehow disturbing promo-video almost a year ago, recently resulted in amazing plane graffiti: More than 30 artists have participated in the Boneyard Project’s Round Trip including DC Super 3 planes painted by graffiti artists How & Nosm, Nunca and Retna, a C97 cockpit by Saner, a C45 plane by Faile, and a Lockheed VC 140 Jetstar by Andrew Schoultz (via aviationpros.com)!
The Boneyard Project is not simply a unique opportunity to give major contemporary artists an amazing canvas of being able to make art out of a plane, it is a chance for us all to examine our own cultural relationship to airplanes and to the archetypal ideal of traveling through the skies.

It’s just amazing to see those old, abandoned (military) jetplanes being reused as canvases for some of the most talented graffiti artists! For more photos visit theflopbox.com or ericfirestonegallery.com.
