Remember the tiny owl that was rescued from the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in November? Well, she’s famous now. 

Rocky, the female saw-whet owl, gained such celebrity status that she’s going to be featured on the tail of a Frontier Airlines plane.

Tyri Squyres, the vice president of marketing announced, “We thought it entirely befitting that this intrepid little owl be honored on one of our tails.”

Rocky will be remembered for years to come with her very special story enjoyed by thousands of travelers who fly on ‘Rocky the Owl.’

The airline is even naming the plane "Rocky the Owl" so that travelers will think of the little creature’s adventure when they fly on the special aircraft. 

After her rescue, Rocky was transported to the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center in Saugerties, New York for rehabilitation. 

On November 24, after some TLC at the wildlife center, Rocky was released back into the wild. 

Ravensbeard shared an emotional farewell video of the tiny owl spreading her wings and taking flight — just as her airplane counterpart will.

Your legacy as the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree owl will always be remembered, Rocky.
