She is called Miss Piggy because of her shape and she was able to hold so much freight. She was rumored to once have pigs on board.
Two of the three crew were seriously injured but all survived.

On one side, she has a red stripe down her side and the Lamb Air logo. The other side was apparently painted gray for a movie.
