Boeing Supports Seahawks in Super Bowl

The Boeing Company is an aerospace company that is no stranger to press. In 2013, Boeing made headlines with news that was good, bad, and ugly. Boeing staff is again making news, and doing the Pacific Northwest proud in a big way.

People throughout the Pacific Northwest Washington State are brimming with pride and excitement over the Seattle Seahawks playing in Super Bowl XLVIII (48) on Super Bowl Sunday, 2 February 2014. That pride and excitement hit fever pitch on 30 January 2014, when Boeing rolled onto the tarmac at Paine Field Airport in Everett, Wash.

“The Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl, and this has the city of Seattle more excited than anything else in recent memory,” a Boeing spokesperson enthuses. “Walk around this city right now and you will see locals everywhere showing much love for our cherished Seahawks.”

Boeing officials sought a unique way to demonstrate love and pride in its hometown team. “What better way to do that than to paint a new 747-8 Freighter in a special Seahawks livery to commemorate this truly special moment in time,” the Boeing representative continues.

That’s not all, folks. The Boeing 747-8 airliner took to the skies and flew a flight path that spelled out the number “12” over Washington state. Social media and news outlets exploded with news of the Seattle Seahawks 747 sightings across the state. It even came to the Spokane area on the east side of the state, where this military and aerospace (mil/aero) geek and 12th Man (the name given to “loud & proud” Seahawks fans) lives.
