Ever wondered where old airliners go to die? For a variety of reasons many old airliners from the Boeing 707 right through to the Airbus A340 are taken out of service and mothballed in desert locales such as the one below.
Vintage planes are like vintage cars. They have a certain distinct style and class about them. Whereas many people collect vintage cars it is rather impractical to collect vintage airliners as cost and storage does pose a few problems.
Polished aluminium, the streamlined shapes, sleek forms of airliners past have a certain allure, which conjures up images of the jet set and the space age. MotoArt a company that specializes in taking old vintage airplane parts and making them into furniture and accessories brings this feeling right into your home or office.
All manner of items from, desks, chairs and coffee tables are fashioned from old airliners. Pieces are meticulously cleaned and polished, to create the ultimate in recycling.
While not for everybody these furnishings and accessories are full of savoir faire. However if there is an inner pilot or airline geek lurking inside these are just perfect.
