The Bronco blue and orange will festoon a Horizon Air Q400 jet that will fly the colors year-round as it flies passengers around the West, the airline announced today. Horizon said the decorated plane is planned to celebrate its 25 years of serving Boise. The Boise State-themed plane is not actually unique; Horizon already has “university-themed aircraft” honoring the University of Washington, Washington State, University of Oregon and Oregon State. “Our four university-themed aircraft have generated an overwhelmingly positive response, and they hold a special place in our fleet,” said Dan Russo, Horizon’s vice president of marketing and communications. “Like the others, the Boise State-themed aircraft will be painted at no cost to the university and flown full time across our route system.” BSU President Bob Kustra said he was “very proud” and called the move “another indicator of our increasing stature.”
