The Seattle Seahawks have had a longstanding relationship with Boeing Airplanes – a partnership the two sides expanded back in 2013.

Wanting to show support for their hometown team (if you will), Boeing decided to unveil a plane today covered in Seattle Seahawks livery.

The 747 if a ‘freighter’ plane meaning it won’t transport passengers but that doesn’t make it any less cool.

While we’ve seen a lot of airplanes decked out in special decals, like Delta did for New York Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera or a Virgin plane wearing a ‘beard’ for the San Francisco Giants in 2010, an entire plane dedicated to one team? That’s pretty rare.

The monstrosity of a plane has a base layer of white paint but employs the Seahawks logo near the wings. The engine covers are painted navy blue while the tail wing features the famed ’12th man’ logo. In addition there is team colored text reading ‘Spirit of 12′s’, ‘Go Hawks’ and ‘#Louder’ near the front of the airplane.

Shame nobody will get to fly in it – though I’m sure it’ll turn heads during its travels.
