Great homepage image

I saw writ large on the side of a jet in an airport I passed through over the weekend, and had to plug the URL into my browser when I got home; turns out they’re an airfreight company with a few dozen jets.

Their website isn’t brilliant from a usability point of view, but the homepage is very impressive because of a series of impressive images that rotate every time you visit. It’s a pity they didn’t get a designer with the same skill level, the site could easily be an award winner with that kind of imagery available!

(Yes, I run a business myself; no, I’m not being ironic. Not everything has to be about money.)
