A Los Angeles-based entrepreneur is planning to bring a 747 airplane to Burning Man, a feat he failed to accomplish at last year's festival.
   
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that Ken Feldman says a 75-foot portion of the plane will be towed 450 miles to the Black Rock Desert in Northern Nevada in time for the annual 70,000-person festival in August.
 
Feldman and his arts nonprofit Big Imagination Foundation had intended to haul the plane to Burning Man in 2015, but logistical and financial setbacks kept the art car grounded.
 
This year, the foundation has secured a plane and crews are working to gut it and transform the front half into an art installation.
