"Kofukucho" sculpture (Sculptor: Kyubei Shimizu)

In Front of the Terminal Building

This sculpture in front of the terminal building is a symbol of Fukushima Airport, and represents a new face of Fukushima and our hopes for great progress into the future.


[A word from the sculptor]
My original idea was to have the shape of the sculpture match the concave part of the glass panels of the terminal building. The name of the sculpture, "Kofuku-cho" comes from "Fukushima," its location at an airport, and its shape which resembles a bird.

Red Biplane

3F / Amenity Plaza

The original model is an S.E.5a fighter aircraft which was designed by the Royal Aircraft Factory in Britain in 1916 ,and played an important role in World War One.
In 1985, the American scale-model company Squadron redesigned it as a microlight plane for aeronautic sports by reducing its size to about 75% of the original.
It looks like a model airplane, but it is a real one.
The engine was removed in order to lighten the weight.
It is hanging from the ceiling, displayed in the air to show what it looks like when flying.
