Check out that sparkle on the tail – Photo: Alaska Airlines

Earlier this month, an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-800 (N568AS) showed up at Paine Field with a special livery. Although the photos showed that the airline was up to something, it wasn’t obvious how cool this special livery was going to turn out.

It is more than just about looks – it’s really about celebrating those who work for the airline.  Not only does the livery sport a very sparkling tail, but also the signatures of more than 8,500 employees.

“Look closely and you will see the words “Employee Powered” by the L1 door,” said Ben Minicucci, executive vice president of operations and chief operating officer during the aircraft’s debut. “This aircraft is dedicated to you as a thank you for all you have done for this airline.”
