Landon Airlines

I have a confession to make.

As those of you living the Pacific Northwest no doubt know, the tail-fin of Alaska Airlines' planes are adorned with a two tone image of a "smiling Eskimo". Well, when I was little, I was convinced that it was a picture of Little House on the Prairie star Michael Landon.



I mean, even looking at it today, its a pretty honest mistake. Especially when you compare Landon's admirable mane to the fur-lining of a traditional Inuit hood. Plus, at the time, Landon was starring as an angel in Highway to Heaven, so it only made sense in my young mind that his image should be flying through the clouds.

Anyhow, just thought I'd share. Keep flying high, Charles Ingalls.

I also thought this was Michael Landon when I was a kid. I didn't find out the truth until I was probably 20. My wife still makes fun of me about the time I innocently asked "Why do you think Alaska Airlines would put Michael Landon on their planes?"

You are definitely not the only one!!! I've been thinking this for years (much to the chagrin of my girlfriend) and living near the flight path of an airport has only made it worse.
