Burning Man Art Cars Will Include 747 Jet

The biggest art car at this year's Burning Man Festival will be a jet. 

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that the team called Big Imagination moved a 20-ton Boeing 747 to Burning Man with Nevada Highway Patrol escorts.

Their team shut down Highway 447 and temporarily cut power to part of Gerlach on the way to Black Rock City.

The project creators worked four years to make the airplane into a mobile art car with a bar and lounge. 

This year the entire fuselage, clipped wings and landing gear will all be there.  The airplane arrived on the playa just before noon Tuesday.

The other pieces of the airplane will follow behind and be assembled in the desert before Burning Man starts Aug. 26.
