Associated Painters workers decorate an Alaska Airlines jet in cool video

Have you seen how Associated Painters, the company based at the Spokane Airport, paints those cool designs on different airplanes?
This video, on Alaska Airline's YouTube page, gives a great time-lapse of the process.

This clip shows the company's workers creating the pattern for the University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolf plane.

Fifty Associated Painters workers worked on the plane over six days, using 15,360 linear feet of masking tape, and channeling some serious university pride. It will begin flying primarily between Anchorage and Kodiak when Alaska Airlines' sister carrier, Horizon Air, introduces the Q400 to the state of Alaska on March 3.
