JetBlue Airways recently unveiled "Blue Bravest," an aircraft honoring the New York City Fire Department and the FDNY Foundation.
The Airbus A320, which is painted bright red, is adorned with the FDNY shield.
The aircraft did a low-altitude, fly-by over the Hudson River at sunrise when it arrived from Roswell, N.M., following its makeover.
"We are New York's Hometown Airline. We work here and we live here. On a daily basis we see the hard work of firefighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians who help keep our city safe," said Dave Barger, president and CEO.
"We have substituted our namesake blue and painted this airplane red, a special honor just for the FDNY Foundation."
The foundation, the FDNY's nonprofit organization, promotes fire safety to New Yorkers and provides equipment, training and support for firefighters and EMT personnel.
JetBlue also has a number of other specially painted aircraft, including jets painted in the color of the New York Jets and the Boston Red Sox and a tourism-themed "I love New York" aircraft.
