Great news from Norwegian today! In partnership with Norwegian, Harvey Milk’s legacy will travel the world, his name and likeness adorning the tail of a state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The aircraft is more than a flying tribute, it is fitted with custom art that depicts the brave life Harvey led so that customers on board will not only see his name, but truly understand and connect to his life’s work. Norwegian will also support the Harvey Milk Foundation’s annual diversity and inclusion efforts and collaborate to identify how Norwegian can become an even stronger advocate for equality, understanding, and inclusion through its diverse workforce.
Harvey Milk joins the rank of recently spotlighted American tail fin heroes including Mark Twain, Charles Lindbergh, Arthur Collins, Babe Ruth, Clara Barton, Sojourner Truth and Benjamin Franklin. Each of these historical figures share Norwegian’s vision of pushing boundaries, inspiring others and challenging the status quo.
The Harvey Milk aircraft is a brand-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, which will be delivered to Norwegian from Boeing at the end of March. It will be the 26th Dreamliner in the airline’s fleet, growing to 34 Dreamliners by 2020.
