New Southwest logo jet - Florida One

Southwest unveiled its latest logo jet today - Florida One - A Flying Salute to the Sunshine State. After being unveiled in Tampa this morning, it departed on a "round the state" tour going from Tampa to Jacksonville then West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Fort Myers before heading to Dallas, the home of Southwest. I was lucky to be able to get out to Fort Lauderdale for her arrival.

Nice to catch such a special plane on a lovely day!

I saw a video about the production of this plane this morning. I wondered how long it would take you to shoot it, I must say I surprised how fast it was.

BTW, I figured out that my next camera is going to be a Canon 7D, it's time for me to move up to a DSLR.

Great shot on Florida 1, a beauty for sure.

Thanks for the post.
