Crashed Airplane Planter

Airplane retrofitted as a flower planter.

[Stephen Francia, 05/27/2020]

The airplane has the home's street number on its tail, making it useful as well as decorative. It vaguely resembles the Spirit of St. Louis, which Charles Lindbergh landed (without crashing) in Moundsville for a brief visit on August 4, 1927.
