    "This airplane celebrates Alaska Airlines' unique relationship with the people and communities of Alaska and underscores our air transport commitment to the state's seafood industry," said Gregg Saretsky, the Seattle-based carrier's vice president of marketing and planning.

    It took a team of 30 painters 24 days to adorn the 120-foot-long Boeing 737 passenger jet with the shimmering likeness. The average 737 takes about a week to paint.

    The one-of-a-kind "Salmon-Thirty-Salmon," as the airline is calling the specially painted jet, will remain a passenger plane - a move designed to give it maximum exposure to potential seafood consumers.

    Mark Boyle, the artist who designed the image, spent about a year working on it and said he's pleased with how it turned out. "The challenge was to make it anatomically correct and fit the tube of an airplane," he said one recent morning as a crew prepared to paint the pink scales along the side of the jet.
