Hey Taxi!
I've never seen this before, but it's parked over on the 20s finger here in MCO. Anyone know what it's doing here?

I thought it odd, not only did it have a Canadian reg, but there was a AC a320, and an AirTransat a320 as well; all by each other. Is there a Canadian convention in town? or Canadian spring break?

Any body know?

all I know is Skyservice was using it for some flights. That's the plane Air Columbus was flying but they went out of business.

I imagine where they are parked. Why is it called the 20s finger?

Actually MIAMIx707 I don't think Sky Service ever used it... Kelowna Flight Craft is the operator....you know the company that operates all of the Purolator 727's and etc?

Glad someone answered this. I saw the 727 at Toronto on Feb 12th this year.

Grant, it has been used for SSV subcharters this season along with Sunwing.

Cheers, Andy

It's been mainly flying for Conquest Vacations all winter with the odd Sunwing Vacations flight. Kelowna Flightcraft is currently trying to keep this a/c based in YYZ for the summer season aswell. KF will most likely be putting N885AA into service finally this summer, flying passenger charters on the west cost for the Air Cadets, which was flown last year by the Big Yellow Taxi.

I was on the roof of the old T1 at YYZ around 3pm today and coincidently, this old 727 landed! It was right in the middle of a group of heavies..... AC 343, 744, 763, KL744, two Transat 333's and this old sled! Nice to spend an hour at T1 one last time!

Not really related to this thread, but I remember reading that LCC JetBlue was gonna be named Taxi, to emphasis its quick and frequent services but they decided against it due to the 'reputation' New York's taxis have. Is this true?

I also saw it this afternoon, as I was driving by T3 on Airport Road. I wondered whose it was, and got home to find a thread about it.  Big thumbs up

yes Gmonney like Dripstick said above, it was used by Skyservice. In fact it was flying the FLL service every Sunday this year, until very recently instead of the usual A320 or 319. Sunwing was using a 737-800 to MCO.

Horus, I also remember some announcements of the then future new airline that is now JetBlue and they were going to name it something else, it was another name they were going to call it. I can't recall what name that was. They ended up naming it Jetblue.

I only see it on the weekends, but we get a few conquest flights a day, well at least 2 I think. It's spring break, so expect odd things......also if you didn't know a Westjet 737 is here also getting PTV's installed.
