Spot Them All: Southwest Has Nine Specially Painted State Planes

August 28, 2012 at 8:32 AM | by | ()

Everyone enjoys a good airplane livery—especially us—so we were pretty excited to hear that Southwest Airlines was busy gussying up another plane to add to its collection. In the past Southwest has painted planes to look like Shamu and even a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, but this month they’re celebrating yet another state with the special design.

As the airline says, they’re now showing off their “LUV” for Colorado. The plane is one of their Boeing 737-700s done up in a creative version—and interpretation—of the Colorado state flag. The plane was shown off for the first time last week, and even the governor of the state and the mayor of Denver were on hand to check out the big bird for the first time.

According to Southwest this is just one of 12 other 737s in the fleet that carry a snazzy design on the outside of the plane, but if you’re looking to show off your state pride there’s nine now:
· Arizona One
· California One
· Colorado One
· Florida One
· Illinois One
· Lone Star One (Texas)
· Maryland One
· Nevada One
· New Mexico One

No word on which state is making an appearance next, but we think the decision can’t come soon enough.
