Tracey Emin Helps Redesign BA's Airbus A319 as a Golden Dove For the Olympics

By Kat Hannaford on at

Thankfully Emin had enough decency not to lead "up and coming" designer Pascal Anson down her garden path, so the redesigned Airbus A319 hasn't got superglued condoms and the names of her past lovers etched onto its body, in the style of her My Bed artwork. The redesigned BA planes will be flying high during the London Olympics, presumably promoting peace and goodwill to all our feathered friends.

Or as The Guardian points out, to those under the Heathrow flight path.

All joking aside, I think Pascal Anson's design is beautiful, and I'd be thrilled if I knew I was riding inside one of the special planes, which will reportedly be in service across Europe for the following year. [The Guardian]
