ICARUS_13; The second instalment from The Hanger One Project follows on from the initial project featuring 45RPM and a Learjet, this time we had to up the game...and this attempt was certainly a game upper! Hit the full screen mode when watching the video below:

Two graffiti heavy weights, going by the names of Sat One and Roids, stepped up to the challenge. Battling sleep deprivation, weather and the enormous size and scale of a Boeing 737, the two artists faced the fundamental task of working out the best way to paint a curved aluminium surface, in the wind and rain! After a few long periods of studying the confusing cylindrical shape it was time to get busy. The two artists worked day and night, fighting the weather for what seemed like a life-time, up and down on multiple pieces of access equipment, manoeuvring around the plane and the uncomfortable awareness of leaking hydraulic fluid, was not part of our 5-A-Day!
HangFire would like to say thanks to everyone who supported us throughout the project. A special thanks goes out to Roids and Sat One for their resilience and determination, Gavin Strange for his enthusiastic approach and visual skills. Much love to 45RPM for you continued support.
