Flying museum dedicated to Argentine legend is filled with Maradona memorabilia

An Argentine tech entrepreneur has turned a 12-seat business jet into a flying museum honoring the late Argentine soccer star and World Cup winner Diego Maradona, who died of a heart attack in 2020.

“I am crazy about Maradona, one of those people who still watch videos of Diego before I go to sleep at night,” Gaston Kolker, chief executive of fintech company Give and Get, told the Reuters news agency. “This is the first World Cup without Maradona and maybe the last with (Lionel) Messi. I said, I want to make Diego’s plane.”
