Uploading live from the event, here's Alaska's proud and newest about to go through the water canon as they start up! A.net gets the first look at Alaska's Salmon Three Salmon scheme, and she's a beauty! The aircraft has been under wraps at KPAE for a long time now, and was finally unveiled today! Special features include an emblem inside the plane, and a special paint that makes the scales shimmer in the sun. To Alaska and the painting crew, as well as the artist, fantastic job!

Amazing Great job, but most of the credit should go to Sen. Ted Stevens and the $500,000 grant given to ASA for the new paint.Our tax dollars at work!

It's a great looking picture but the only thing I don't like is the big 747 right behind it. In my opinion, it takes the look of this magnificent paint job.

I think it's pretty funny livery and I bet that shining paint would look amazing on a sunny day.

It's a new plane with a new paint job and it's a great shot. Background could be a little different, though, but good.

Nice photo and great plane, one of my favorite jets! But I have to admit I do not like the fish painting on the airplane. To be sure its very well done and the artist has great skill but somehow I don't think it belongs on the side of an airplane! Yes boys & girls everyones different :P

Beautiful artwork, but it makes the outline of the aircraft difficult to determine (Particularly against the 747 behind)

This is a beautiful job! A great way to promote a great state. I just hope people don't think Alaska Airlines don't pack 'em in like sardines!!!

Such a perfect photo! Nice plane with a beautifully drawn salmon fist. It actually matches with the fuselage of the B737 too! Photographically, taken at a nice angle and altitude showing the profile of the aircraft.

The dynamics of this art work make the fish appear as though it is along side the aircraft rather than on it.

The proportions of the fish to the aircraft is exceptionally. I don't think I have a big enough rod and reel for this one.

Excellent! The airplane fuselage shape is the perfect canvas to paint a fish, such as this one and also a whale like Shamu on Southwest. I like this one better though.

It's not a seven salmon seven, or a salmon thirty salmon.
It's being called a salmon thirty salmon. Alaska has been using this name for their 200s in ANC for years, although this is a 400.

The double image of the nose of plane and salmon. The reality of the tail, wow. The colors and detail are so real. What a super way to call attention to Alaska Airlines. Great job.
