Fans Flying High

Most airline passengers spend the majority of their time inside a plane and only catch a quick glimpse of the exterior when boarding and exiting. There usually isn't anything particularly interesting about the outside of a plane, but what if you looked out the terminal window and saw one decked out in your favorite team's emblem and colors? Without a doubt, flying would be a whole lot more fun.

US Airways and AirTran Airways have taken team spirit to the next level for select NFL, MLB and NBA teams. With a sizable investment from these airlines (it cost AirTran about $160,000 to paint each plane), fans can fly high in the sky on their ultimate cloud nine.

Check out a few runway snapshots of these fan-friendly, flying machines:

Baltimore Ravens

Indianapolis Colts
