Celebrity Status: Flying Colorado One Home

Explorer C

WOW!  This has to be the most exciting thing I’ve done at Southwest Airlines!  I was overwhelmed with pride the moment I saw Colorado One sitting on the ramp realizing that I would be flying it to Denver for all of Southwest to see.  For me, this is the culmination of 16 years of being a Coloradan and commuting from the Denver area.  I’ve seen the dedicated Employees of Southwest Airlines work so hard to make our fastest growing destination such a huge success.

I look forward to serving our Pilots as the Denver Chief Pilot and to working with Team Denver!   Now it’s off to the Spirit Party!

Humph! It just the same old paint job!

Carl, maybe you haven't seen the full image - it's not at all the same old paint job! This plane is painted with the Colorado flag along the whole fuselage, with the usual SWA tail scheme, and as far as I am aware that makes it unique. I think it's an awesome idea that honors Colorado, so I'm excited to see it on the tarmac at DIA!
