JetBlue's coming tail-fin, "Building Blocks".

JetBlue has today unveiled what is their most unique and colorful paint scheme ever to celebrate their 10th anniversary!

Airbus A320 N569JB received dozens of orange, blue and black “10’s” covering the rear of the aircraft. Ten years ago on February 11th, 2000, JetBlue began two daily flights between their New York JFK hub and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Today, they offer the most domestic flights of any airline at JFK.

JetBlue also used the opportunity to introduce what will be their next tail-fin on coming aircraft. Voted for by over 30,000 people from a design submitted by JetBlue crew member Troy Bokosky, “Building Blocks” will be making appearances at local airports soon.
