Alaska Airlines Goes Tropical with Their 'Paint The Plane' Winner
January 15, 2013 at 7:13 AM
Remember way back when Alaska Airlines was looking for a little help to repaint one of their planes? Well it looks like they now have a winner, and one of the Boeing beauties will be heading into the hangar for a fresh coat of paint sooner than later.
Kiddos from Hawaii were asked to pick a design that celebrated creativity, education, and the fun that is exploring new places. The spirit of the islands definitely came through loud and clear with some of the winning entries, and as you can see above the final choice is going to look pretty darn awesome plastered on the outside of a Boeing 737.
The big winner is Aaron Nee, an
11th grade student from
Kaiser High School
over in Honolulu—congratulations. Besides getting his artwork installed on the side of an airplane, he’ll also score a $5,000 scholarship and a trip for four to any Alaska Airlines destination. There’s some pretty good runner up entries as well, and we’ve got to say the design of a kid eating a shave ice on the tail is one of our favorites.
No word on when this new livery will make its debut with Alaska Airlines, but you know we’ll be the first to show it to you. Until then we’ll just try to wait patiently.
