Alaska Airlines "Portland Timbers" plane visits Orange County

I totally lucked out this morning as Alaska Airlines new "Portland Timbers" theme plane passed through John Wayne Orange County Airport (SNA/KSNA). It had been a cloudy morning but when she pushed for departure I got a cloud break and brilliant sun peeked through the clouds. The airplane has been through Orange County once already as it arrived on Friday night May 6 overnighted then departed early Saturday morning May 7, but the sun was nowhere to be found. She came back Saturday afternoon but again the sun was on holiday. I feel very fortunate to have photographed her so early while the livery was still in pristine condition.
