safety gear

Airport fashion show highlights safety

It may not be pretty or high fashion, but the protective clothing worn by many people who work at airports can guard against injury and illness.

At least that was the message last week at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) in British Columbia, Canada, at the second annual Safety Fashion Show.

Here are few of the models that appeared on the red carpet:
