Southwest is known for their ‘free-spirited’ image.  They embraced hot pants in the ’70s, Shamu in the ’80s, and state flags beginning with Lone Star One in 1990 and continuing with California One, Nevada One, New Mexico One, Florida One, Maryland One, Illinois One and now Missouri One in 2015.  Missouri’s state flag is extremely intricate for a paint scheme.  This time lapse video, produced by Southwest Airlines, shows the sheer amount of skill and patience it took to paint the jet.
