Just a few weeks after AirTran unveiled an aircraft painted all black for the Atlanta Falcons, they’ve painted another of their Boeing 717-200s for the Baltimore Ravens, captured by our good friends at Airliners Gallery.

The second in a series of three NFL logojets, N946AT has a black tail with the Ravens logo, with the black sliding down and along the entire underside of the aircraft. Captured here by Michael Bolden in Miami, the aircraft will be officially unveiled soon.

It is said that the next special paint scheme will be for the Indianapolis Colts. AirTran is also partnered with the Orlando Magic and Boston Bruins, but there is no word on special scheme plans for them as of yet.

Special thanks to Airliners Gallery World Airline News and talented photographer Michael Bolden. Keep up the great work, guys!
