Flashy Coloured Winglets At Southwest?

Just a quick question for the forumers here... Yesterday I operated a flight into MCO. As we were preparing to depart we heard no fewer than 4 different people make snide comments on the ground frequency about the flashy winglets a Southwest flight was sporting. The pilot replied that the aircraft in question had been involved in testing a new bio-fuel and the winglets were a way to advertise that fact. Unfortunately for us, the aircraft was on the other side of the airport so I was unable to see what it was that everyone was talking about. I did a photo search on here and couldn't find anything that would fit the bill. Has anybody seen this aircraft or, better yet, can anyone provide a link to photos?

Regards,
outoftheice

I work for WN in MCO on the ramp and haven't seen an aircraft with "flashy winglets" or one that stands out from any other aircraft. Interesting story though. I sure would like to see a pic if this special aircraft exists.

All of the specialty paint jobs have white/gray winglets because they would look kind of goofy painted like all of the others.
