Christoph Buchel has applied for a Kern County conditional-use permit that will allow him to bury the 153-foot-long decommissioned airliner west of Boron. It’s not far from the desert’s aircraft boneyard.
The Bakersfield Californian reports the project, dubbed “Terminal,” already has planning department staff ap-proval.
The jetliner would be buried 38 feet below the surface.
Visitors will be able to experience the subterranean art project via an underground tunnel connecting the plane to a parking area. They’ll be able to use the plane’s restrooms, which will be connected to a septic system.
