(Best Syndication News) - Swiss artist, Chistoph Buchel, will be burying a Boeing 727 commercial airplane in the Mojave Desert as installation art if Kern County approves the project. The airplane will be buried 38 feet underground near Boron, California. Tourists would be able to view the airplane because the artist wants to dig a tunnel to the decommissioned plane. There will be a working bathroom on the airplane for the tourist to use.

A local Bakersfield news report by KGET, reported that the project is called “Terminal.” Buchel was inspired by the mining and aviation history, which inspired this idea of unearthing the ground to put an airplane there. A Kern County representative said during the KGET interview that Buchel has been working on getting the clearance for the 5 acres where they plan to install the artwork. Final decision by the planning commission by the end of this month. If approved at the end of the month, “Terminal” could be completed by as early as this fall. Groups of five can book a drive from the LA Museum of Contemporary Art and currently the museum is planning two or three trips weekly to the underground airplane.

(Best Syndication News) At their meeting this week, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors (BOS) agreed to cut their benefits. The move could save the taxpayer more than $240,000 per year.

David Wert, a spokesperson for the county, tells Best Syndication that during last year’s Grand Jury review of salaries, it was determined that changes needed to be made. Although the county charter limits the salaries to comparable salaries in Orange and Riverside Counties, the benefits were out of line.

This prompted Second District Supervisor Janice Rutherford to propose a change.
