Long live the Groundgripper! Vive le saiseur du terrain!

The scene: the marketing department of the International Airport Authority of Ottawa / L’administration de l’aeroport internationale d’Ottawa.

OK guys, we need a nice modern, environmentally friendly, aircraft image for the top of our homepage. Stressing our go-ahead thinking while simultaneously emphasising our good-neighbour credentials. Probably best to paint out the airline logo – just keep it nice and neutral. Something Canadian – you know, Bombardier – that would be great.

Sure boss, I know just the thing. Leave it with me.

(…thinks…this’ll really wow him…)
