Boeing's jumping on the Seahawks bandwagon in the best way they know how. Wednesday afternoon, the company rolled out a 747 painted with a special Seahawks theme.
This was one thing we could do to show the support, not only of the team but of the local community, and everybody we talked to was very very helpful and wanted to understand how they could help, said Eric Lindblad, VP and General Manager of the 747 Program
The 747-8 freighter will make several flights around the Puget Sound leading up to Sunday's game.
Tomorrow we ll fly over the eastern side of the state in a pattern that we fly... it will be in the form of a 12 for the 12th Man, said Lindblad.
Lindblad said the plane would also fly over the city of Seattle Friday, or possibly Monday after the Super Bowl.
