PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Some impressive tail art was on display as the Spirit of Arizona was dedicated Friday.

The Arizona National Guard 161st Air Refueling Wing hosted the ceremony.

"These aircrafts are approximately 50 years old and are scheduled to fly another 40 years. The pilots who will fly them aren't even born yet, which is awesome," Johnny Narro with the National Guard said.

Parked next to the plane was the U.S. Airways Arizona and Southwest Airlines Arizona.
