The Disney Frozen-themed plane

WestJet's Disney Frozen plane above the mountains

 

Painting

Over 170 gallons of paint were used to create the cold-to-warm scene on the Disney Frozen-themed plane. There were 23 colours used in the design and sparkles were added to sections of the paint to show movement as the aircraft flies through the sky. A team of painters came together from Canada, the United States and Germany to bring this livery to life. Watch the painting of the aircraft.
