The Party Plane

Most of our planes look the same. Same paint scheme and everything. Now and again, though, they'll go nuts and paint one up different. It's still in the fleet, and it's just that one... except that it's the wrong color. For example, they made a Olympics one in 2002. And when they hit an anniversary that same year, they made a red and blue one. I have seen that one once or twice... they call it the Pepsi can.
This year was also an anniversary. I guess you have one of those every year, but this was a round number, and so they made a new one. It's regular white like all the others up till about row seven, and then it... well, it looks like this:

You know, kind of like Cool Ranch Doritos exploded all over it. And because of this, it's got itself its own nickname: the Party Plane. They also call it the Mullet, because it's business in the front, party in the back. I had seen this one around too, but this trip I got to fly it. Remarkably the same on the inside. Disappointing. I was kind of expecting neon lights, or at least a disco ball.

Or, don't judge a prospective flight experience by the paint job on the aircraft. L.M.
