Fighter planes at the Tate

Posted in England, London by folkestonejack on August 21, 2010

On a weekend trip to Tate Britain I came across the two fighter planes at the Tate – a Sea Harrier hung from the ceiling and a Jaguar belly up on the floor. It was really strange to see them in this context and at the same time hard to deny the strange beauty of these machines of war.
