The Blazing Wing
The distorted steel construction, 15 m high and weighing 1.5 tons, was developed to be fueled by liquid gas burners.
The wing was suspended in the courtyard of the Technical University in Graz on December 12, 1980 and was ignited at 8:35 P.M.
Water curtains protected the facades. During the action the crackling of the flames was heard over amplifiers.
The steel construction was produced by the firm Metallbau Treiber in Graz according to a model scaled at 1:50.
