360 lbs of Paint

AirplaneI've always wondered how much extra weight primer and paint adds to a Boeing 767. Luckily, I no longer have to live without knowing the definitive answer to this age old question. Air Canada will strip paint from its planes to lighten its load by 360 lbs and save on fuel costs. Stripping the paint and primer will save AC $24,000.

I recommend renting the paint stripper from Stephenson's.
