MIAMI — Football season is still several weeks away, but the Boeing team is ready to get started.
Boeing is once again a sponsor of the Seattle Seahawks this season, and has rolled out the latest 747-8 Freighter to be painted in its colorful livery again. Last year, the company applied the Spirit of 12s scheme onto one of its jumbos to pull off a salute to the Hawks in the days leading up to their Super Bowl XLVIII victory in 2014.
According to Boeing, new paintjob features a similar scheme to the previous one, with a few changes. The early rollout ahead the football season is to participate in a flyover during the Boeing Seafair Air Show over Lake Washington on August 2. The airplane will also take part in other Seahawk-related activities during the year as part of the ten-year partnership programs in the Puget Sound Area.
