Good-luck jet blocks road to city hall

A PHASED-OUT fighter jet has been blocking traffic for three years on a road leading to a government building because a sick official placed it there after consulting a feng shui fortune-teller.

The jet is poised in take-off position in the middle of a 40-meter-wide six-lane road in Gaoyi County of Henan Province, yesterday's Southern Metropolis Daily reported.

Drivers have complained about blocked traffic, particularly during rush hours, the report said.

An unnamed official told the newspaper that a superstitious county official was sick three years ago. He consulted a fortune-teller who said the road leading to the county government building was unlucky for him and must be blocked. The jet sculpture forms the shape of a coffin which the fortune-teller said indicated good career development and wealth.
