Back in the middle of 2013 I wrote a post about Southwest’s Specialty Fleet.
The fleet included a bunch of planes with interesting and unique liveries. A few of them were part of the SeaWorld fleet which I believe are no longer around since the partnership ended last summer.
Southwest also has nine liveries dedicates to US states.
Now the airline has unveiled their newest specialty plane, a 737-700 called Missouri One in an event at Kansas City International Airport. The plane features “an artist’s rendition of the Missouri state flag“.
According to the blog Nuts About Southwest, “With more than 30 years of service in Missouri, we’re showing our commitment to the state in a big way!“
The airline hosted a party to show off the new plane. On hand were Southwest’s Kansas City employees, “community partners, local dignitaries” and the airlines President & CEO Gary Kelly, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon & KC Mayor Sly James.
Along with unveiling the plane, Southwest also made a donation to Kansas City’s Science City at Union Station.
After the event the plane was to fly to Lambert- St Louis International Airport to celebrate there, also making a donation to the St Louis Science Center.
Check out a time-lapse video of the planes transformation:
