Football legend Diego Maradona died of a heart attack in November 2020. The World Cup this year will be the first event without him. An aeroplane designed as a flying museum was dedicated to Maradona and was unveiled in Argentina.
The aeroplane is a 12 seater called Tango D 105 and was financed by an Argentine fintech company in memory of Maradona. It has a picture of Maradona kissing the World Cup trophy. The wings have both of Maradona’s goals in Argentina’s win over England in the World Cup quarter final. While the ‘Hand of God’ goal is on the left wing, a goal considered as the greatest of all time is on the right wing.
Gaston Kolker is the CEO of fintech company” Give and Get” stated that he was mad about Maradona and that he still watched videos of him before going to bed at night.
The aircraft will be flown across Argentina before heading to Qatar for the World Cup this year. His fans will be able to board the plane and pay tribute to the legend and even interact with him through artificial intelligence. The aircraft will be available for private hire and will be eventually auctioned for charity.
