Magnetic : Rebranded Oldies Wide-bodies.

Avgeeks knows perfectly were not so old Malev Airbus A320 are currently sleeping: in some remote US Aircraft Boneyards... But not all of them are dying silently on the sun. The Bone Yard Project resurrects disused airplanes from America's military history through the creative intervention of contemporary artists, taking entire airplanes and putting them into the hands of artists. Re-imagined by Brazilian graffiti artist Nunca, an abandoned DC3 comes to life with a striking picture of an eagle leading men through the skies, and the idealized dreams of flight are able to soar once again in our collective imagination. 

More than 30 artists have participated in Round Trip including DC Super 3 planes painted by graffiti artists How & Nosm, Nunca, and Retna, a C97 cockpit by Saner, and C45 planes by Faile and Andrew Schoultz. This unique project was curated by Erick Firestone, Carlo McCormick, and Viejas del Mercado.

Unfortunately, The Bone Yard Project: Return Trip Catalog is sold out since a few years...
