Dec 29 2015 3 bizjets tagged (Grafitti) parked inside hangar

Post by bizjets101 »

Second time in two years taggers have targeted bizjets at Van Nuys Airport - this time they cut thru an airport fence and broke into a hangar - visiting Gulfstream GIV N700PP based West Palm Beach - was one of three bizjets tagged.

Such a shame.

Is it "just" a matter of washing it off, or are there more maintenance checks required ? (corrosive stuff on a pressurized skin ?)

fyi, they thrive (or at least some of them) on getting their tags published, so it might work in your advantage if you remove the pictures or make the tags unreadable later on.

Photos will be in all the LA papers by morning and already aired on NBC news - if anything it'll probably get them caught - or considering it's LA - they just arrest them on something bogus or shoot them - one or the other.

Police say in this weekends tagging - taggers signed the jets with their own monikers - as opposed to the Lear two years ago which was an RIP for a slain gang member, with no signatures.

This is the Lear 60 that was tagged two years ago at Van Nuys - it was parked outside over the weekend - N898PA - it cost 100K to get her back in the air!!

Image
This time they cut thru fence and broke into hangar.

Ironically there has been political arguing over hiring more police officers to patrol the airport.

A perfect example of our "secure in appearance only" airports. Our security systems are a joke.

I would have thought that el cheapo spray can paint would be removable with MEK while the aircraft two part epoxy paints would be unharmed by MEK.

Or are the taggers using something nastier that can't be MEK'ed off?

Cant use on the windows and rubber seals of course ..

With morons like that wandering about, I'd sure want to do a thorough walk around. They act just like the rats I trap at my property, just break in and shit all over the place. We may have iPads but we are so close to chaos.

Pretty crap security with no surveillance cameras? The aircraft I was involved with had security systems and motion detectors.

That Graffiti article was from Dec 2015 and I fail to see how the Air Canada article relates to it.

read xsbank's post and then tell me how my post is inappropriate.

why would one not contribute to a thread about depraved graffiti mixed up with airplanes?

most would think that a line has been crossed.
