Aviation Photo #4883575 Airbus A320-251N - Frontier Airlines

[Canon 5D Mark IV + Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II] Many people know the three things I'm probably most passionate about are Atlantic Puffins, aviation and photography. What most don't know is that in 2008, I set a goal of getting one of my puffin pictures on the tail of a Frontier Airlines airplane. Ten years later, here is Frontier's newest Airbus A320neo, "Captain the Puffin", at my hometown airport, featuring my puffin photo on the tail and inside the winglets.

That is awesome your photo is on the aircraft...congrats! I saw Atlantic Puffins off Maine in 2013 then in 2014 I saw Tufted Puffins at the Farallon Islands off San Francisco, then in 2016 Tufted and Horned Puffins on St. Paul Island, Alaska. They are such cool birds! As an Avgeek I was stoked I finally flew on the A320 with Paxton the Puffin last year and I've since seen N322FR as well.

Thanks Maurice! I've yet to see Tufted and Horned Puffins in the wild (I'm a little partial to Atlantic Puffins), but hopefully I will be able to in the future :)
