Alaska Airlines Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 University of Idaho Vandals Livery

Alaska Airlines Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 University of Idaho Vandals Livery. Part of our special series of aircraft featuring West Coast universities, this livery celebrates the University of Idaho Vandals.

The plane will feature a silver I Vandal logo on its golden tail, the university’s word mark, and the words “Idaho” and “Vandals” in gold on both sides.

The new 76-seat turboprop aircraft is sure to delight the university’s large alumni base in Idaho and around the northwest.

The cost of painting the aircraft will be covered by Horizon as part of its scheduled repainting; there is no cost to the university.

University of Idaho Vandals Facts

The Idaho Vandals are the intercollegiate athletic teams representing the University of Idaho, located in Moscow. The Vandals compete at the NCAA Division I level as a member of the Big Sky Conference.

The football team was an independent for the 2013 season due to a major wave of departures from the WAC that left just two football-playing schools. In July 2014, Idaho returned its football team to the Sun Belt Conference and the other sports rejoined the Big Sky Conference.

The university’s official colors are silver and gold, honoring the state’s mining tradition. Because these metallic colors in tandem are not visually complementary for athletic uniforms, black and gold are the prevalent colors for the athletic teams, with an occasional use of silver, similar to Colorado, whose official colors are also silver and gold.

When Idaho moved out of the Big Sky to the Big West in 1996, the yellow “Green Bay” gold was changed to metallic “Vegas” gold. Yellow gold and black were the colors used by most of the varsity teams from 1978 to 1996, initiated by first-year head football coach Jerry Davitch’s new uniforms for 1978.
