Good News...

Glad to share with you the professional performance of valued 3F member alpha trans Luft- und Seefrachtspedition GmbH & Co. KG, Germany.

alpha trans team has transported a delicate art object to South Korea. The transport was exciting, but not as much as the story of the historic fighter jet nose. For years the Starfighter F-104 transported equipment and weapons for the German armed forces. The last fighter jet of this type flew over Germany on May 22, 1991 in a special livery from the Manching Defense Technical Center. Then neon artist Chris Bleicher turned the nose of this historic jet into a symbol of peace with the title “Flower Power”.

After several years of exhibition on the military grounds in Manching and at the 6th Berlin Art Salon, Chris donated the nose to the Haegeumgang Theme Museum for the “7th Geoje International Art Festival” on the subject of “PEACE, AGAIN”, which takes place on September 1st takes place until November 25, 2021 and shows works of art by 245 artists from 54 countries. As part of this important PEACE festival, the nose will be exhibited at the Yukyung Art Museum, which is part of the Haegeumgang Theme Museum.

alpha trans team first picked up the work of art from Chris Bleicher's Munich studio: and took it to a box maker at Munich Airport. From there it went on to Busan, the second largest city in South Korea, in a tailor-made package. In the meantime, the nose has arrived at its destination act and has been received by museum staff which transported the nose from Busan to the museum in Geoje. Chris Bleicher was happy that the “Flower Power” nose survived the long journey without a hitch and can now spread her message of peace in far-away South Korea. Incidentally, 16 neon works of art followed a short time later, which alpha trans also sent to Busan in specially made boxes. They will soon be shown in a solo exhibition by the neon artist in the Haegeumgang Theme Museum and goes on tour in Korea.
