Mark your calendars...
Around 2 PM local at SEA on October 1st (a Saturday), an Alaska Air 737-400 will be touching down bearing a brand new special paintscheme. It is claimed to be the most complex livery to be painted on an aircraft to date. Unfortunately I do not know the tail number of the plane.
Because Horizon and Alaska employees have access to a special invite for the comissioning of this bird, I am hoping to be present in the Alaska hangar on this day for the event.
All that can be said about the details is this: "The special paint theme is being kept under wraps until Oct. 1, but it's funded by the Alaska Fisheries Marketing Board, so that should give you a clue as to its theme."
So grab your cameras and hope for good pictures on October 1st!

Someone started a thread a couple of days ago questioning whether Alaska should redo their paint scheme and/or change their name...I forget the details of the thread, but this is interesting considering most of the feedback to that thread was negative...
