Photos: Delta Launches "Pink Plane" Commemorating Breast Cancer Research Foundation's 20th Anniversary
China Aviation Daily | Sep. 30, 2013

Delta Air Lines' annual "Breast Cancer One" employee survivor charter flight launches today, kicking off the airline's October fundraising campaign for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and celebrating the organization's two decades of dedication to preventing and finding a cure for breast cancer.

Delta's Pink Plane, a Boeing 767-400, will fly from Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport with more than 140 employee cancer survivors from locations around the world. It marks Delta's ninth annual BCRF survivor flight.

Delta's international "pink plane," a Boeing 767-400 featuring BCRF's trademarked pink ribbon logo on the tail of the aircraft and adjacent to the boarding door, has carried nearly 395,000 customers and flown more than 15,500 hours -- or approximately 1,900 trips around the world -- since being painted pink in May 2010. The aircraft flies international routes and will raise awareness for BCRF in London, Milan, Rio De Janiero, Sao Paulo and the United States this year. Delta's first pink plane was a Boeing 757 that between 2005 and 2010 flew throughout the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean to generate awareness for the cause.
