Video: Airplane Graveyard Turned to Motocross Playground

After more than a century of flight and thousands upon thousands of airplanes produced, there are some new innovative uses for retired airframes. While furniture and art pieces are a growing trend, motocross enthusiast Robbie Maddison has turned an airplane graveyard into obstacles and ramps made of old airplane parts.

Check out the attached video to watch Maddison conduct his incredible tricks and jumps around the airplane graveyard. The video is beautifully shot, so even if you are not a motocross enthusiast you'll likely enjoy it. Not only is it aesthetically marvelous, the tricks that you are about to watch are hair-raising, and the finale may make you question the sanity of this biker!
