Lookin' good...by design

This summer Canadians and people around the world will notice a subtle change in the public face of Air Canada. An Air Canada which will still look reassuringly familiar, but which will have that extra touch of class and freshness.

Below, it looks like an exotic insect, but it's actually our Boeing 767-200ER, Fin #613 (C-GDSP), sporting a coat of base paint. Once the job is complete, Boeing will have applied about 500 lbs. of paint.
