Boneyard Airplanes Become Art In Tucson    
By Mary Grady, Contributing editor

Six retired military airplanes have been transformed into “monumental works of art” for the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, Ariz., the museum announced this week. The “Round Trip” exhibit, set to open on Jan. 28, will feature former Air Force aircraft that had been stored for years in desert “boneyards.” Aircraft used as canvases include four DC-3s, a Beechcraft C-45 (a military version of the Beech 18), and a Lockheed VC-140 Jetstar (a 1960s-era jet used for military transport). The cockpit from a Boeing C-97 also was used as a canvas for the show. More than 30 artists from around the world took part in the project.

The show is part of an ongoing Boneyard Project, which launched last summer in New York with the “Nose Job” show, which gave the nose cones from about two dozen military aircraft to artists to use as “canvases.” The Arizona exhibit will include some selections from that show along with more than a dozen new projects that have not been previously exhibited. The Pima museum maintains a collection of more than 300 aircraft and spacecraft from around the globe and houses more than 125,000 artifacts. The Round Trip show is open to the public from Jan. 28 through the end of May.
