A Salmon Thirty Salmon?
What did they take a 737 and paint it up as a fish or something?
|Quoting CATHAY747 (Reply 5):|
Was it? Blast....wish I could remember. Oh well....maybe somebody will have more specifics.
|Quoting CATHAY747 (Reply 9):|
I believe I read here on A.net that they used a special paint so that the scales of the fish will "shimmer" in sunlight!
|Quoting Loisencroach (Reply 11):|
think it was a -200 because its next stop was Yakutat, where the aircraft was inspected after the strike. I may need to be corrected, but I believe that they only fly -200's into Yakutat for the "milk run".

If anybody has a subscription to Airways, there is an article in the September 2005 issue about the fish strike.

I still havn't been able to "catch"(pun intended) this one in person yet. I know it's a little unlikely, but I'd love to fly home from OAK on that beauty next month on my way home from Oakland.
