Alaska Airlines and Lightning McQueen

The newest themed airplane in Alaska Airlines’ fleet flew into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport today, featuring one of America’s most beloved and rusty tow trucks.

Adorned with the familiar images of Disney-Pixar’s animated Cars characters Mater, Lightning McQueen, Guido and Luigi, the colorful Boeing 737-800 named “Adventure of Disneyland Resort” celebrates Alaska’s partnership with Walt Disney’s original theme park.

The Adventure of Disneyland Resort aircraft received its new livery at Aviation Technical Services in Everett, Wash.

A team of specialists from Associated Painters Inc. accomplished the complicated painting process, including a sponge-type application to re-create Mater’s rust-colored finish.
