Not sure I get it - perhaps it will look better when it is finished?
Went for a cycle ride to my local haunt at Tatton Park in Cheshire to be greated by the tail section of G-TBIC being used as an art piece.
Some pictures i have seen on the National Trust site show it with rudder and air brakes so i guess they are to be fitted.
Blimey, I bet that was deer.........
I'll get my coat.
Whats it called then........
Tales of the riverbank..........?
Part of the Tatton Biennial it seems.
From their website: "This third edition of the Biennial considers the human urge to fly, to accomplish the impossible in fragile times."
The tail section seems to be more of a venue for performance art than simply a painting on a tail:
And the Colditz glider has inspired this one:
I sometimes wish contemporary artists would make the art easier to understand by us mere mortals.
"Writing is easy - all you have to do is stare at a blank piece of paper until your forehead bleeds." - Douglas Adams
Monarch Of The Jet?!
Did any of the artists bother to research Tatton Park's historical aeronautical conections?
The closest is the glider piece and even that seems to be hung up on Barbara Cartland.
33 was a Hart
She was scrappe dat Southend in February, ex Flightline aircraft.
Pass the remote
What i forgot to add was. I can just imagine what performing arts may be happening after dark also "elf and insanity" won't have a rudder and air brakes in case any little scrote gets his fingers stuck and sues the council for vast amounts of dosh. Give it a month anyway and it will be covered in grafitti if the hedge monkies have not weighed it in down the local scrappy.
Or do I just have a cynical view of this fair land today?
I have kleptomania,But when it gets bad
I take something for it.
Its not an "elf"..its a "dear" isn't it ?

'Where the hell have you been?'
I have spread my dreams beneath your feet. Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
I wonder if they left the back bog in it, so it is of some use.
That isn't art, its a waste of a good airframe...draw a line on a piece of paper and calling it 'life' that can be classed as art.
Anyway it managed to mate my interests together of aviation,cycling and countryside.....what could be better !
Anyone know the history of this which had a misshap on it's way to Mars !
Odd place to find a fried egg and tabasco
Is Jordan missing something
