carrier’s role in transporting Alaska seafood
Alaska Airlines today landed the world’s largest king salmon—
stretching 120 feet and weighing in at 140,000 pounds—
at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
The “Salmon-Thirty-Salmon,” sporting the glimmering image of
a wild Alaska king salmon, is among the world’s most intricately
painted commercial airplanes. Complete with shiny scales,
a dorsal fin and gills, the livery on the Alaska Airlines 737-400
passenger aircraft is the result of a dedicated team of 30 painters
working nearly nonstop for 24 days.
