According to The Guardian, a Norwegian airline is extremely close to using legendary black metal musician Euronymous (Øystein Aarseth) on the tail fins of one of their jumbo jet planes.

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the carrier is asking passengers to vote on a new set of heroes for their aircraft's tailfins. Voters can take part by voting for which ever notable Norwegian figure they like - as long as they are dead - and the one with biggest boost will get to adorn the extremities of an aircraft in the fleet of Norwegian Airlines. You can place your votes here. Euronymous was killed by his bandmate Varg Vikernes in August 1993.

After being put forward by a local nominating committee, the Mayhem co-founder has collected the highest share of votes, leading over Trond André Bolle, a soldier who died in 2010, and the Lutheran reformist Hans Nielsen Hauge. The contest closes today, March 28th.

Hhahahaha is that pic just a joke or it would REALLY look like that?
Urs Blank - 28.03.2012 at 14:01  
A satanist proudly flying that high just under God's nose? Sounds like an act of provocation! Beware of his wrath and thunderbolt, you evil Norwegian airline

I'm eager to see if they will go for Euronymous and if so, what it will look like, but anything looking similar to this pic would be awesome

Probably the highest a satanist will ever get.

Was wondering if this would get newsed. Apparently you can vote once a day too so people should take advantage of that.

Well, if you haven't already voted for Euronymous, you can fin Valfar on the Bergen list, but he's only on the 45th position. Also, if you cast a vote on a list you cannot do the same on the others, thus vote wisely. It's a pitty I didn't know about Valfar, I would''ve voted for him as well.

Probably just badmouthing it as a conspiracy or something because he's jealous that Euronymous is viewed moreso as the godfather of Norwegian black metal than he is.
Jiri - 28.03.2012 at 16:52  
The plane will crash if Euronymous is pictured on it. You heard it here first folks! The Jiri prophecy of doom. You'll see. You all will see!
Valentin B - 28.03.2012 at 16:57  
I read a bit about Euronymous' ideology, it seems aside from the music he was quite fucked up. He wanted, together with Varg, to blow up Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim which imo is one of the most beautiful buildings on earth, but then again I mostly voted him for the lulz.
WorpeX - 28.03.2012 at 17:01

Only if another plane with Varg's face painted on it crashes into it and takes it down.
Vombatus - 28.03.2012 at 18:39  
I remember sometime ago there was also a similar vote about picking the most iconic figure of Suffolk. And Dani Filth was an option. Obviously everyone voted for him for the lulz but the organizers cancelled the votes.

Even if it'd be funny to see Euronymous on a plane, I think it might suffer the same problem as the one above.

Undoubtedly the pilot of the Varg's plane will claim he knew that the plane was going to hit him first and so flew into him before he could act.

But he'd have to crash into the other plane 23 times, not just once.
BitterCOld - 28.03.2012 at 23:51  
And then spend the next 20 years constantly changing his story.
Mr. Doctor - 28.03.2012 at 23:59  
Not to mention that the pilot will point out how certain airlines are superior to others.
BitterCOld - 29.03.2012 at 00:07  
And denouncing the airplane as the mode of transport of the black man, forsaking it, declaring that the pilot of the Air Euronymous was a gay communist....
@gent_-_orange - 29.03.2012 at 00:10  
Then after a 16 year period of absence, Burzum airways will return, only the customer service will be complete shit compared to its earlier incarnations which was just decent.

If I remember correctly Norway's biggest export is black metal CDs. So it's only fitting that a Norwegian "hero" would be a black metal musician.

There will be a final round. That will happen during April 11th - 13th (16:00 local time).

I'm not sure did Euro win his own town battle (or what was that, Oslo perhaps?), but I think he did. Anyway, five first round winners left.
Void Eater - 07.04.2012 at 01:06  
Euro ain't gonna be on it, his family wouldn't let them, so they say. It's just as likely that the airline company made that story up in order to avoid having to put Euro's face on it. Regardless, it is now my mission in life to buy an airplane and paint Euronymous on it.

Amazing that they actually nominated such a piece of human shit.

Next we'll be commemorating the deeds of such despicable excrement ala Kaminski and Derlewanger.

Interestingly enough, there have been allegations that some Norwegian troops have unofficially adopted the Totenkopf (Death's Head) icon as used by Nazi concentration camp guards (and a Waffen-SS Division that initially recurited from concentration camp guards) as well as some other Nazi iconography.

Actually it's main export is oil and petroleum products.

It's why its economy has been largely saved from the current European economic malaise.
Ragana - 08.01.2014 at 03:34  
That and the fact that it's not in the European Union.
But honestly, there are pictures of at least 40 other people featured on Norwegian's aircrafts... and Euronymous is not one of them).
