A United Airlines Boeing 757 that features iconic images from New York and New Jersey on its fuselage and tail took to the skies Thursday at Newark Liberty International Airport.

The artwork includes the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Red Mill, an 1810 grist mill in New Jersey.  It also includes a globe that is intended to signal the airline’s worldwide connectivity.

The artwork was designed by a local artist, Corinne Antonelli, as part of the airline’s Her Art Here contest for female artists.

A Boeing 757 is approximately 3,666 times bigger than a standard 18” x 24” canvas.  Painting the jetliner took 17 days, ten colors, over 250 gallons of paint, and approximately 4,100 manhours.
