Damn proud of the PM’s plane

By James Caldwell | Published: June 18th, 2013

After publishing Keith Branscombe’s article about the PM’s plane, which quite honestly mirrored thousands of comments in the newspapers and on television albeit with far more flare, I was lucky enough to have the designer of The Government of Canada CC1-150 paint scheme email me a short but polite “Drop me a line”. So unlike the general media whose articles were written on a solely political slant (which I actually blame for igniting the firestorm of comments), I asked Jim to write me a rebuttal. He has easily exceeded my expectations by sharing some of his knowledge on his rather unconventional design niche in aircraft paint scheme design.

Another federal design disaster

My good friend Keith Branscombe is at it again. A couple of days ago he sent me a beautiful rant about the Canadian Government and its lack of thinking when it comes to branding our national image. This time it is about the new paint job on the Prime Minister’s military Airbus jet, the Polaris CC-150. He has graciously allowed me to publish it. Enjoy!
