Talk about letting your colors fly. On Feb. 19, Horizon Air unveiled a new mini-fleet of four special-livery aircraft honoring regional universities: Oregon, Oregon State, Washington State and the UW. Although opportunities to use the 70-seat CRJ-700 jets for school-themed events will be limited, they are scheduled to fly Horizon’s regular routes—which include Seattle to Southern California. So traveling to the UW-USC game in a jet with a big W on the side isn’t out of the question.
