Boeing flew a Seahawks-themed 747 in a 12 pattern over Washington

Look to the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s…well, it’s a plane, I guess. But it’s a special plane, so there.

Boeing unveiled a Seahawks-themed 747 yesterday. Pretty cool, right? Well, new planes are obviously in need a test flight, which is what occurred on Thursday.

However, Thursday’s test flight wasn’t just a plain (plane?) ol’ journey through the sky. No, Boeing decided to fly the plane in the shape of the number 12. Why? I have no idea, but sources close to the situation tell me Seattle Seahawks fans have some weird affinity for that number.

Check it out:

Pretty nifty, right?

You can see what the pattern ended up looking like here. (Hint: It looks like the number 12.)

Oh, and according to Boeing’s calculation, 121 million Skittles could fit in the plane. How many of those Skittle-infused sausages could fit in the plane? Trick question! The answer is none, because those things are an abomination and shouldn’t be allowed out in society.
