A DC9 without wings
A DC9 without wings
Adain Avion is a mobile art space made from the recycled fuselage of a DC-9 airplane that was discovered and transformed by Spanish sculptor Eduardo Cajal. Welsh artist Marc Rees is working with contemporary artists and community groups from across Wales to celebrate the work's 20th anniversary by bringing it to the UK for the first time.
Welsh artist Marc Rees has brought the plane to Wales as part of Wales' Artists Taking The Lead commission, which is included in the London 2012 Festival and part of London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. It is also the focal point of Big Dance Cymru celebrations in the town.
Shame some of the blurb referred to how many casualties had been incurred with this type of aircraft. Hardly the ''need to know'' stuff. SH7982 : A DC9 has landed in Llandudno SH7982 : Cockpit of a DC9
