Alaska Airlines' big fish is back.

The Seattle-based carrier's original "Salmon-Thirty-Salmon" was a Boeing 737-400 painted to look like a giant King salmon in 2005. Last year, Alaska repainted that jet in its traditional Eskimo theme.

This week, the carrier rolled out "Salmon-Thirty-Salmon II," a Boeing 737-800. The paint job -- "livery," in airplane-speak -- is nearly identical to the original Salmon-Thirty-Salmon, albeit about nine feet longer, with fish scales on the winglets and a salmon pink-colored Alaska script across the fuselage. It's "the most intricately painted commercial aircraft in the world," according to a news release.
