I did post this one earlier, but due to a lack of response i decided to post it again with the word 'video' it the headline, in hopes of getting everyone to see this wonderful video of the retirement of WS's last 732.  Smile

Having flown all my WestJet flights on the -200's since 1996, it was very nice to see a tribute like that.

Thanks for sharing!

Hard to believe almost all of the 732's have been retired now from all North American carriers. DL unloaded the last of theirs last October, and WN has likewise retired all of theirs. Sad, but most of them are parked in the desert. Who still flies the 732?

Within Canada, only the 3 northern carriers: Canadian North, Air North, and First Air. I dunno about the US.

Carson,

thanks for posting this great video. Will WestJet's 737-200 be scrapped or are they being sold to another carrier ?

Cheers,

A good portion of them were scrapped, but a lot of them went to airlines in South America.

Nice -- the -200 is old-school! I *love* the sound of those engines going full-bore... Love the sound of the 727, and the 707, too! Reminds me of travelling as a kid...

Wanna see some -200s?! Come on out to the Islands and ride around on AQ for a few days. You'll get more than your share or nostalgia.

Brings back memories. Watching the thrust reversers fold out is awesome. I always tried to get a window seat just behind the wing on 732s, each landing looks, feels and sounds like it's the last one of your life!  Cool

That Would have been somethin'.

Notice the Pulsing Landing Lights WestJet uses. And that Water arch by the Calgary Airport fire service is so sweet. The music fits that video perfectly.

That roar when they put the coal to the fire is a sound I'll never forget.... fond memories of UA, DL, & PI 732's here in GRR.

Where there pax on the plane? Now THAT would have been awesome!!

Great video... thanks for sharing!
