    Shark Week has become a TV staple since it first debuted in the 1980s. Now the frenzy is spreading at 35,000 feet.

    For the third year in a row, Southwest Airlines will join the fray by rolling out shark-themed designs on its Boeing 737 aircraft.

    In previous years, Southwest had given just one of its jets a shark-inspired look. This year, five Southwest 737s will get a shark makeover. Each plane will feature its own species of shark.

    The aircraft still show Southwest’s typical paint scheme, but an image of circling sharks and a 30th-anniversary Shark Week logo will grace the nose of Southwest’s five Shark Week jets.

    The special liveries debut Monday and will fly on the jets through Aug. 31.

    In another new twist, Southwest has partnered with flight-tracking service FlightAware to let aviation (and shark) enthusiasts track the shark-themed jets on FlightAware's website.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    Kids are going to love this.

    Shark Week is a good thing for kids-they learn about something that interests them voluntarily, while they are on summer vacation. Our library used to have a summer reading program, but that was a long time ago.
