EVERETT — Boeing is flying the Seahawks colors high over Washington.

The company painted a 747 freighter with the team logo and the number 12 on the tail to salute the fans.

The plane rolled out of a hangar Wednesday at Paine Field in Everett. It flew to Boeing Field in Seattle on Thursday for a brief stop and then took off to fly a 12 pattern over Eastern Washington.

The freighter is owned by Boeing and used for flight testing.

Boeing partners with the Seahawks on a program in the Puget Sound area and is displaying the 747 as a tribute to the team's success as it heads into the Super Bowl.
