What a beautiful painting for Alaska Airlines. Does anybody remember Braniff Airlines paint jobs?

Absolutely gorgeous paint job on this Alaska 737. Great photo showing excellent detail. Cudos to rwb2112 for this submission.

Not too many people outside of aviation circles realize that this particular paint scheme was inspired in part by an actual event of a salmon striking an Alaska aircraft following its' departure from Juneau, Alaska. Read the NY Times article here:

Thanks for the compliment Adam!! I'd been hoping to get shots of this since Alaska started coming here in 2012, it's a late arrival from SEA and departure back so the winter time change rules out any chances of a photo. I've gotten all the other -800s except the Boeing-theme one and had about given up on the salmon, but finally, there it is, a clear day to catch it landing and get to to back side of the airport for a departure just before sunset. And thanks to Airport Police, Security & Ops. for allowing photographers and aficionados to be back in that area to enjoy aviation!

Alaska Airlines refers to this aircraft as the "Salmon-Three-Salmon" plane
