Alaska Airlines Commemorative aircraft Salmon Thirty Salmon II plane Boeing 737-800. Sporting an image of a wild 129 foot long Alaska king salmon, the aircraft’s livery also features fish scales on the winglets and a salmon-pink colored “Alaska” script across the fuselage.
The 2012 design is among the world’s most intricately painted commercial airplanes and was produced in partnership with Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, which promotes wild, natural and sustainable Alaska seafood. Source : AlaskaAir
Alaska Airlines “Salmon-Thirty-Salmon” History
The Salmon-Thirty-Salmon is a tribute to the airline’s partnership with the state of Alaska seafood industry. Alaska Airlines flies over 20 million pounds of seafood a year from Alaska to markets in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Imagine how confused that eagle would be today if it crossed paths with this big fish.
Alaska Airlines original “Salmon-Thirty-Salmon” was a Boeing 737-400 painted to look like a giant King salmon in 2005. In 2012 the carrier rolled out “Salmon-Thirty-Salmon II,” a Boeing 737-800.
The paint job — “livery,” in airplane-speak — is nearly identical to the original Salmon-Thirty-Salmon, albeit about nine feet longer, with fish scales on the winglets and a salmon pink-colored Alaska script across the fuselage. It’s “the most intricately painted commercial aircraft in the world,” according to a news release. Source : Seattlepi
