Tony Jarvis provides us with the following report on this commercial: This is NWT Air's Hercules C-GHPW with Captain Bob Foote, F/O David Cameron, F/E Jim Stewart and behind them a very nervous Norm Geiger as loadmaster. The location is in the Sprey Lakes, Alberta, which is near Canmore West of Calgary. This is a car commercial for Peugot and though it looks it, Bob never did actually hit the car. However.......on one take the director kept shouting
