Rich people love to buy art at Art Basel, and rich people also love private planes. So it’s only natural that Netjets, the private jet charter company owned by Berkshire Hathaway, decided to combine these two important hobbies, putting on an installation of a NetJets Signature Series Global 5000 aircraft that is painted to resemble an “ombre sky.”
According to a company press release, the plane was designed by the New York studio Snarkitecture and is on display for the entirety of the festival at the Landmark Aviation terminal at Miami International Airport. Netjets has been a partner of Art Basel for fourteen years, and has seen its traffic to and from the festival explode since then. This year, they estimate that they will charter 250 private jets to the event.
This special plane is available to charter too, though we would be afraid it might blend in a bit too well with the blue sky outside. Would birds/other planes even see it?
