Mission Summary

Incident Report

On 240511 at 2200 hours, we received reports of ongoing heist activities involving several area art museums, and began to investigate. It was ultimately determined that these activities were benign, and included contributions to public art. The sequence of involved locations is covered in greater detail below.

The Launch

Prior to launch, the fleet engaged in the christening of a bomber, which is reported as flying on the mission: The Lavender Menace. 15 pilots then from their fort, with Pastry Queen navigating on a separate and fully-loaded bomber, setting off on a serpentine route toward a "reverse art heist".

Harvard Art Museums

The fleet landed at the Barker Center, just down the street from Harvard Art Museums, where there was an open space for the creation of art. A bonanza of chalk ensued, leaving much ephemeral art, and a piece of more permanent free art to be adopted by a member of the public.

Institute of Contemporary Art

After flying along the edges of the the Boston Nebular Harbor, the fleet again landed in the proximity of an art museum, and quickly engaged in their reverse heist activities. Many artworks were created, including some long (in terms of running distance) poetry.

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

After some twists and turns, including traversing a Hyper-Wormhole with a ship channel, the fleet landed for the third time at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Under the inquiring gazes of museum denizens, they began to create a masterpiece to help fill the void of the stolen Rembrandt. A civilian student who had just finished the final essay of their illustration degree passed by, and joined the fleet in chalk drawing.


The fleet returned to the fort without any further artistic endeavors. The flight home included a civilian saying "A bike gang! Watch out!", some excitement involved with navigating train traffic, and an ad hoc black hole. All pilots returned safely, as did all ships, though there were 2 mechanicals in flight.
