I think the new look makes Shamu look more at "home". What do you think?

Yes, it is a beautiful aircraft and I think the blue suits Shamu more since he is a whale and lives in water so it seems natural. I saw that aircraft in new colors yesterday at MSY. I love spotting at MSY especially at the cafe across the street from the north south runway.

Just to correct you: Shamu is a She, Keiko is a He.
