Spirit of Alaska Statehood plane


Unveiled in 2009, the "Spirit of Alaska Statehood" was painted with a Sitka high school student's winning design to celebrate 50 years of Alaska statehood. The unique livery on a Boeing 737-400 aircraft was created by 16-year-old Hannah Hamberg. It features a musher and sled dog, state ferry, Native Alaskan canoe, bear and whale, along with the statement, "We're all pulling together." Hamberg's design was selected from among thousands of submissions by students across Alaska in a statewide "Paint-the-Plane" contest.
