I was just driving down the access road on BFI and I saw a WN aircraft on the delivery ramp on the Boeing side of the field and it appears to be a new special livery. Is this true? If so, what will this one be? I could not get a very clear look at the fuselage due to service structures and the jet blast barricades in the way, but the tail of the aircraft is in plain view, so I am sure it is a WN plane.

Does BFI do any repainting for Southwest? The last special themed aircraft needing new paint is "Nevada One". I haven't seen it in a while so maybe it's in the paint shop? Maybe that was the aircraft you saw at BFI? I dunno...

Quoting 2H4 (Reply 4): In what way did it look different than a standard, or partially-painted standard livery?
It has the standard WN canyon blue tail scheme, but the fuselage is not in the canyon blue paint scheme. It is certianly not an unpainted fuselage, as there is color on it. Again, I could not get a very good look at it due to obstruction blocking my view, but I could see enough of it to know that it is not in the standard livery.
On a second note: Just one hour ago (0200 PST, 1000Z), the aircraft was parked in front of one of the 737 paint hangers, still obstructed from view by service structures and barricades, but it is the same aircraft. Some one with binoculars or a telephoto lens might be able to get a good view of it from the fence on Airport Way between Classic Helicopter and the NE Airpark.
