Fox Broadcasting and Western Pacific Airlines today unveiled the airline's initial "flying billboard," a Boeing 737-300 jet painted bright yellow and featuring likenesses of the Simpsons, the cartoon family featured on Fox. Ed Beauvais, president-CEO of Western Pacific said: "We take safety and service very, very seriously. But we also think flying is fun. And what could be more fun than flying in a Simpsons airplane? American aviation and American television are important parts of our culture. That's why a joint promotion between Fox and Western Pacific is very appropriate."
