That is so cool!

What a fun capture! I've always loved that Alaska Airlines livery, and you have made it come to life in this shot!
Alex Georgescu
I find this disturbing :)
Guy Genbrugge
Can somebody tell me who that person is on the back of each airplane?
Wayne Brown
Nice to see Americas favorite airline. Treating customers as people everyday not as cattle.
Thrilled to see this airline expanding its routes across America and International.
My preferred carrier since 1972.
Isaac Vogelzang
Guy, I have heard that that is "the eskimo man".
Cool shot!
Don Lynch
I think the pic is great. However I have no idea who that is. It has no meaning to me.
Mike Whetstone
Might be Eskimo Joe; runs a great tavern in Stillwater, Oklahoma, usually shown with a big cheesy grin and perfect teeth. :)

Guy Genbrugge, I think I posted this story on this site years ago but this is a perfect opportunity to tell it again! When I was a controller at Burbank tower back in the mid eighties Alaska was taxiing and someone came on frequency and asked "Hey Alaska, who's that guy on your tail?" Alaska replied "He's our Chief Pilot" to which the first guy responded "He's better looking than ours!"
And Isaac Vogelzang is correct. It's just an image of an anonymous Eskimo, according to the Alaska pilot.

Incredible shot!!

I heard once that it is the semblance of a gold miner (in Alaska, a "sourdough"). Kinda cool that it can be viewed both ways. Can anyone from Alaska weigh in on this?
www.alaska.net "After the California gold rush, when the Klondike prospectors sailed from San Francisco to Alaska, they carried precious sourdough starter with them - and ever since sourdough bread has been associated with San Francisco. And in Alaska, a prospector with a pot of sourdough strapped to his back was quickly nicknamed a "sourdough"."

It is cool to see the old and new of Alaska's Livery. I really like the new Eskimo! Alaska is the BEST!

Whether the eskimo on the tail is a real person or not, and if it is who is it, is something of a mystery, and the airline is apparently happy to leave it that way. See their explanation here:


I flew Alaska for the first time last year, and it was great.
Love this picture!
Oh my god a Muammar Gaddafi look alike convention?
Had to laugh! Great shot of my favorite aircraft and airline! Thank you for this unique shot!

Thanks so much guys!
Greg Byington
Oh, and great shot, DMac!. It is like a forest of Alaska Airlines tails. ;-)

The guy on the tail of the Alaska jets is my friend Thomas Piscoya from Nome Alaska. Tom is a senior Captain at Alaska Airlines and has Ben flying in Alaska about 40 years. Others will say it’s an artistic rendition of a native Alaskan but those of us who know better know for sure it’s Tom!
