tmb cpa proud wings A320 211On January 13th 1999, Canadi>n Airlines launched their new logo. In December 1998, the design team arranged for a top secret paint test at an aircraft graveyard outside of Tucson, Arizona.

Evergreen Air Center painted the new colours complete with the new goose icon, ironically, on the vertical stabilizer and rear fuselage of a retired Air Canada B747. Canadian's executive checked and approved the new logo. B747 fin #881 was sent to Beijing and Dash 8 fin #179 was sent to Arkansas to have the aircraft prepared with full livery and interiors.

Ground equipment also got a make over. The design group favoured white, Marketing suggested red, but VP M&E, Ken Goosen suggested blue, his reasoning was that red was still associated with the competition and fades quickly.
