Any idea as to what time it departed LTN bound for YOW? Maybe I can grab a pic of it this afternoon upon arrival.

Here's the press release relating to Zoom's launch:

It landed not even 10 minutes ago, so you missed it. But at least you should be able to get a good look at it now. I hear that employees are being treated very well at Zoom, with great benefits overall. I wish them the best of luck, and hope to see them at YHM this winter!
