Alaska Airlines unveiled a special-edition 737-800 at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Tuesday during a gate celebration for passengers flying to Orange County, Calif. The all-new adventure stars Brie Larson in the title role as Carol Danvers, a female pilot who has acquired special powers.

“This new plane featuring Captain Marvel will delight guests of all ages,” Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of marketing and advertising, said in a news release. “We’re excited to showcase a pilot who’s risen to superhero status –– an image that embodies strength and confidence and inspires future aviators across our expansive network to go further.”
