AirTran Airways (Orlando and Atlanta) yesterday (October 13) officially unveiled the Atlanta Falcons logojet dubbed “Falcon 1”. AirTran intends to also paint logojets for the Baltimore Ravens and the Indianapolis Colts also of the NFL. Ironically AirTran does not fly the football team (its planes are too small). Instead the Atlanta Falcons charter larger aircraft from Delta Air Lines!
