Jetwhine Wins a Webbie from Jetwhine by Robert Mark
The past six months have not been easy for the aviation industry, or any other industry quite frankly, as we’ve all witnessed the bottom falling out of the marketplace.

Southwest And The Swimsuit Model from Things with Wings by Andrew Compart
Southwest today unveiled an aircraft, dubbed SI One, that is wrapped with a temporary decal featuring the bikini-clad cover model from the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. It's a particularly

Southwest loves to adorn its planes in different ways. I'll also attach a couple of those below, and you can see a bunch more of its "specialty aircraft" here.
