The Characters From 'Cars' Are The Latest in Airplane Art For Alaska Airlines

We’re always eager to see some new paintjobs slapped onto the sides of airplanes all over the globe, and this week Alaska Airlines is showing off its latest in airline art. The carrier already has a few planes dedicated to all things Disney, and now it's adding a new one to its hangar.

The kiddos—well, and us too—will be eager to check out the new look of this Boeing 737, as the airplane features artwork from the movie Cars and has been named named Adventure of Disneyland Resort.

The jet made its debut up in Seattle, but its first flight took it down to John Wayne Orange County Airport where it was only a few miles away from Disneyland. Even better was that a few little travelers were onboard from the Make-A-Wish Foundation on their way to visit Mickey and friends.

In case you’re interested in the numbers behind this latest creation, it took 72,000 linear feet of masking tape to get things ready for the plane’s new look. Roughly 34 different worker bees were involved on this new livery, and it took just about a month to complete. Keep an eye on the skies, and be sure to let us know if you see this Alaska Airlines plane out in the wild.
