PLAN B - Let's Bury the Jumbo Boeing 747!

After the denial of Hornbach we figured out a plan b.

Bury & The Captain will travel about Europe to promote BTJ. Because there is actually no money on the Bury the Jumbo acount, they pay this trip out of their own pockets. Information about their adventures will be published in this blog.

The two fellows will travel by train for 20 days and stop over in:

  • Vienna
  • Berlin
  • Paris
  • London

If you know places/opportunities to stay overnight, please let us know.
If you think that Bury & The Captain have to visite you, please let us know.

The utensils in the video will help them to explain to the international audience what they are promoting exactely.

Bon voyage!

The denial of Hornbach

Unfortunately, Hornbach doesn't support our project (the rebuilding of the Jumbo's tail fin).

We congratulate the 10 winners and wish them good luck with their creative work. We are very curious about your projects!

In the meantime, we figure out a plan b!

Application for cash

Because the cash inflow (donations) stagnates, we have to find a way to get the money for production of our website and our actions.

According to its general principle, the City of Zurich distributes every year CHF 100'000 to cultural projects.

BTJ supports several creative individuals. Therefor we are eligible. We have asked for a financial contribution (CHF15'000) to our production costs (which are much MUCH more!). 

We keep our fingers crossed!
(The same to you.)

I was a Boeing

The attached article by the Financial Times includes entertaining information about the crap we are going to bury. Did you know that it's more than 75 tonnes of aluminium?

This is about 4.2 Mio. empty cans of beer.

Thanks for the hint, Marco Hubeli.
