Plane Spotters Ruin Olympic Surprise

Canada’s The Globe and the Mail reports Air Canada planned to unveil in Vancouver next week its last 777, which sports a special Vancouver 2010 Olympic decal.

But plane spotters at Paine Field where Boeing manufactures the jet captured the aircraft with the special decal and posted it on the internet. You can view the nifty aircraft here and here.

“Our jaws kind of dropped,” an Air Canada spokeswoman told the paper. “It was the first time most of us had seen it ourselves.”

Air Canada may have been surprised, but they certainly understood images could leak out. “An airplane’s a pretty big item.”
