Hey hey Y'all, here we are again for a lovely new addition to the SLC Spotting threads. The next time I head down the 'port, I will be flying out on the SLC-EWR CO red-eye, and I'll try to get some pics taken. Any requests?


Next trip: SLC-LAX-JFK-LAX-SLC on AA, gotta say goodbye to my beloved 762!

Doesn't the new Air Canada Jazz YYZ-SLC start next week? Maybe we should throw it a little welcoming picture party.

The online pdf timetable shows AC 8651 starting 6/8. Arriving at 8:50pm. So if one of you SLC natives can confirm the start date I'll head on up and meet with you guys after work if it on the 8th.

See you all soon.

If I can persuade my dad to take me to the airport (again) then, I'll be there! Hope/pray for 34s and that it comes in on 34R!

Oh and just in case anyone cares...

I'm flying SEA-SLC June 26th. Departing SEA 1740 arriving SLC 2035. I was going to try and leave SEA early enough to have time to shoot at SLC, but I want to catch BA and SAS, which arrive at 1630-ish...

We usually meet inside the S-gates (just south of Terminal 1) but there's a lot of construction going on now...we may need a new place to pow-wow?

I'm still working on starting the spotting site...I really will try and get that thing up and running soon. One week until freedom!!  Smile

The online timetable says starts 6/8 but the article says starts 6/2

Maybe we need to find someone from AC on the board.

Ah, sorry. It says YYZ-SLC starts on June 2nd. But I can't book nonstop YYZ-SLC AC on expedia before June 8th...so I'm inclined to think they're wrong?

Is it the same one that was here last year?

I'd like to go get a shot but I won't be able to make it out there until early evening...

I can't make it to the airport today, anybody else going to be around?

I went!! It was parked out at UPS though, so I didn't get any shots. I had to leave at 1730...

Sorry, two rarebirds in 3 days and I can't get a reasonable shot of either

I need a press pass...

Oh and btw - that Kalitta 747 went from SLC to ANC, then to KHV/UHHH (Novyy, in Russia - 1.5 hrs from ANC). I presume that stop is because fuel is cheaper over there. Then, I'm guessing, it headed down to Singapore.

Kevan or Devin or SLCUT2777, did you get it??
