Even Boeing is celebrating the Seahawks' achievements with a specially designed 747.

The company rolled out the plane in Everett Wednesday afternoon and tweeted: "Stunning even in the rain."

The 747-8 is owned by Boeing and currently being used for flight testing. It features the distinctive Seahawks logo and a "12" on the tail to salute the team's fans.

The airplane took off from Paine Field Thursday morning, made a stop at Boeing Field and then continued on to Eastern Washington, where it is flying in the shape of the 12. You can track the progress here.

"The 747 team is proud that one of our airplanes could be used as a tribute to the Seahawks' success this season and a rallying cry for the team as they prepare for the Super Bowl," said Eric Lindblad, vice president and general manager, 747 program, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The partnerships we have with the Seahawks and others are making a positive difference in the communities where Boeing employees live and work. We join with all Seahawks fans in wishing the team success on Sunday."
