Artist creates art from fighter jet

There's a giant wooden jet fighter at the Kamloops Art Gallery. You can actually sit in it. And there's a story behind it.

Sketching art at the speed of sound.  You might remember a couple of months ago, we talked about an exhibit at the Kamloops Art Gallery.  We spoke with artist Michael Markowsky, who drew hundreds of pictures while flying inside an actual jet fighter airplane.  Part of his project was to also build a wooden replica of that plane.

Well, that work is now finished.

Daybreak's Tara Copeland went to have a look.
