Pink fighter jets headed for Capitol Hill light rail station
Pink fighter jets have permission to land at Capitol Hill Sound Transit station, since Sound Transit's finance committee on Thursday granted New York-based artist Mike Ross $484,000 to buy two decommissioned military planes and slice them into segments for an underground sculpture.

Ross will paint the pieces pink and purple, then hang them like a mobile -- so the jet noses appear to kiss over the light-rail-boarding platforms.
The sculpture, "Together," will be part of the tunneled line from Westlake Center to Husky Stadium, to open in 2016.
