The message, “Forward together as one, Japan” will be painted on the bodies on a combination of aircraft operated on domestic and international routes. A Boeing 777 and 767 will fly the message in English, while a 777, 767 and 737 will see the new paint written in Japanese.

The newly painted jets will begin flying on April 13th to coincide with the resumption of flights to tsunami-ravaged Sendai Airport.
