Default Pink Fighter Jets

Hmmm, mating pink and purple jets. This I have to see for myself.

From Seattle Times:

Pink fighter jets have permission to land at Capitol Hill Sound Transit station, since Sound Transit's finance committee on Thursday granted New York-based artist Mike Ross $484,000 to buy two decommissioned military planes and slice them into segments for an underground sculpture.

Ross will paint the pieces pink and purple, then hang them like a mobile -- so the jet noses appear to kiss over the light-rail-boarding platforms.

The sculpture, "Together," will be part of the tunneled line from Westlake Center to Husky Stadium, to open in 2016.
