About the Tohoku Flower Jet
On March 11th 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake lead to one of the deadliest tsunamis in the world causing the death of over 15,000 people, and severely impacting the lives of countless others even still to this day. In 2016, ANA employees wanted to commemorate and portray the resilience of the Tohoku people, so a B737-800 aircraft was painted with this special livery. The livery contains beautiful flowers from all 6 prefectures of the Tohoku region.

Why should we have this livery?
Just starting off aesthetically, this livery is simply amazing and it doesn’t take much effort to see why. The wide variety of flowers and the ANA Colors just match so well, it’s truly a prefect fit for the B738 aircraft. On that note there currently is no ANA B738 livery in the game, and with nearly 40 of these aircraft in the ANA fleet IRL, this aircraft is essential for connecting passengers domestically throughout Japan. The recently announced ANA B77W is sure to bring attention to Japan and All Nippon Airways as a whole, so why not add this as an option for pilots to fly? Furthermore unlike the other ANA special liveries such as the Star Wars jets, ANA has no plans of repainting this livery in order to continue to commemorate the 2011 disaster.
Where does the Tohoku Flower Jet fly?
Even through the Coronavirus Pandemic JA85AN could be found flying in the skies. It also operates a very diverse schedule, meaning that it is highly realistic to fly any route operated with an ANA B737-800. If you want to see where it’s flying to right now, go ahead and check out this link!
