Peter Pan’s not the only one with the powers of flight. Brazilian airline TAM and Disney World have partnered to put a character wrap around one of the liner’s Boeing 767-300s. The look, which debuted Monday morning in Brasilia, is the first time a Disney Parks wrap has appeared on a Latin American airline.
The plane is scheduled to make international, long-distance routes. Its first trip to Central Florida will be late on Tuesday afternoon, when it lands at Orlando International Airport.
The wrap covers the plane’s fuselage and tail. Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are seen riding a roller coaster, followed by Donald Duck and Goofy. The Magic Kingdom’s Cinderella Castle appears on the tail. The Walt Disney World logo type appears on the midsection of the aircraft.
The companies said the design required 536 adhesive panels, covering 9063 square feet. They were applied during 10 eight-hour days.
The aircraft — dubbed the “Plane of Dreams” — was introduced in a hangar during a show prepared for media, clients and executives. Tinker Bell appeared, waved her magic wand and the curtains were removed, revealing the plane to the public. Later, the four Disney characters portrayed on the plane mingled with attendees.
