Copa Airlines' Frank Gehry-Inspired Plane (PHOTO)

Latin American airline Copa is apparently so proud of the new Frank Gehry-designed Biomuseo, which will open in 2013, that it's decorating one of its Boeing 737-800s with a Gehry-inspired design.

The aircraft is part of Copa's "next generation fleet" and will fly a number of routes in the Western Hemisphere.

Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines, said in a statement: “This aircraft will not only allow [us] to share how proud Panamanians are of the rich natural history of our country, but it will also serve as an invitation to the world traveler to visit Panama, an ideal and privileged center for the exploration, knowledge and protection of biodiversity."

Check out the aircraft, which was delivered last week, below.
