A Boeing 727 Will Be Buried In The Mojave Desert As Art

Mojave desert

Folks, we’re going to need a bigger shovel. 

As part of an exhibition for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Swiss artist  Christopher Buchel plans to bury an entire aeroplane beneath the sands of California’s Mojave Desert, Jaunted reports.

Buchel’s aircraft of choice: a Boeing 727

The land art installation, called “The Terminal,” will be buried 38 feet below the surface.

Visitors will be able to enter the aircraft through an underground passageway that allows them to view the subterranean landscape.

As a precaution, the windows will be reinforced and any hazardous materials including jet fuel and the plane’s engines will be removed before the airliner is buried.
