In celebration of the fact that the Seattle
Supersonics Seahawks have reached the final of the International World Superbowl Gridiron Championships (I think), Boeing – sometime champion of the Pacific Northwest (when it’s not threatening to up sticks and leave) – has painted one of the 747-8Fs it had knocking around in Seahawks colours ahead of the big game. And very nice it is too. The Seattle team will take on the Denver Broncos in New Jersey on Sunday. Reports that BAE Systems intends to paint a BAe 146 in the colours of local soccerball club Preston North End have so far proved difficult to pin down.
