Alaska Airline’s new Disney-themed airplane


Alaska Airlines introduced its fifth Disney-themed airplane at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Wednesday and this one is decorated with Disney-Pixar’s animated Cars characters Mater, Lightning McQueen, Guido and Luigi.

Here are some factoids about the airplane:

•A 34-member crew worked around the clock for 29 days at Associated Painters
Inc. to paint the plane.

•Painters airbrushed the aircraft with 70 colors and applied more than 10,000 square feet of vinyl graphics to create the characters.

•More than 72,000 linear feet of masking tape was used during the painting of
the airplane.
