Weekly Photo: Giant flying corn art featured at airport

The weekly photo goes to Atlanta airport for installing a huge corn airplane.

Here it is described by the Atlanta airport:
“At Gate E-16 is probably the largest flying ear of corn you will ever see. From Nutt’s “Flying Vegetable” series, the design was inspired by jetliners. With its wings swept back, leaping into flight the corn is propelling upward to cruising altitude. This humorous work was hand-carved by Nutt from wood and painted to capture the details of this indigenous American crop. To accompany the flying corn, Nutt created an air traffic control tower. Nothing is more appropriate to guide the “Corncorde” on its journey than a tower composed of a giant carrot and motorized spinning butter bean also made out of carved and painted wood. “
