Since its inception Southwest Airlines has almost exclusively operated Boeing 737 aircraft (except for a brief period when it leased and flew some Boeing 727-200 aircraft). Southwest is the world's largest operator of the Boeing 737. Southwest added the Boeing 737-800 to its fleet on April 11, 2012. The aircraft has 175 seats, 38 more than the former largest 737s in Southwest's fleet. Southwest made its first flights out of Kansas City back in 1982 with six daily departures to two cities. Fast forward 30 years and the airline now serves 60 destinations and 156 departures originating from Missouri. To commemorate the anniversary, this Boeing was emblazoned with a painting of the Missouri state flag. Unveiled at a ceremony at Kansas City's Aviation Technical Services, this Boeing 737-700 is a high-flying representation of the Missouri state flag, prominently featuring the Great Seal of Missouri. The seal features two grizzly bears embracing the motto "United We Stand." The engine cowlings incorporate the center elements of the shield, including a crescent moon, a grizzly bear, and an eagle from the United States coat-of-arms. To accomplish this vibrant new paint scheme, a 45-person team worked 24 hours a day for nearly 10 days. Ten different dramatic colors and 56 gallons of paint were applied to the fuselage, wings and tail to create the one-of-a-kind work of art. The two grizzly bears stand more than 15 feet tall and 9 feet long.

Boeing 737-700

Designed as a smaller, short-ranged alternative to the Boeing 707 and 727, the 737 was first flown on April 9th, 1967. Over its long operational carreer, the 737 has spawned numerous variants ranging in capacity from less than 100 to more than 200 seats. In fact, the 737 series is the best-selling jetliner in aviation history with more than 6,500 aircraft manufactured to date and more than 4,500 still in service with over 500 airlines around the world. Incredibly, there is a 737 taking off or landing somewhere in the world, on average, every five seconds.
