Hello All:

I was on the 407 (highway north of Toronto today), and the approach to Rwy 23 passes over the 407 at some point, and I noticed a white fuselage'd E-190, with a dark blue tail landing on Rwy 23.

If I hadn't mistaken myself, I could have sworn it was a jetBlue E-190.

If anyone was out after I left around 4 pm, can you confirm or deny if there was one present?

I just want to know if I should be mad at myself for leaving earlier than I wanted to LOL!

Thanks everyone,

1011yyz

It could of been US Airways. They have white fuselages, and blue tails... fly the E-190, and I'm pretty sure its on the PHL-YYZ route.

Looks like it was a B6 A320. Maybe some kind of charter.

FWIW, not sure if it is related. But Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett) had its annual meeting in Omaha, NE this weekend.

Could be a charter for a some subsidiary or something.

Lots of charters and biz jets in OMA this weekend.

I saw the plane fly over my house and was puzzled what it was. It entered the Toronto airspace over the entry point south over Lake Ontario, where most US flights overfly.

Not sure how that relates to YYZ...?

Do the White Sox use B6 as a charter? It was a get away day for them out of Toronto.

Because the flight came from Omaha?

My bad...I apologize.

On a related note, B6 applied in October to start "private charter flights" to Canada. http://www.smartertravel.com/blogs/t...for-canada-service.html?id=2457448

Yep...Berkshire Hathaway Annual meeting. 100's of biz jets today leaving omaha. Apparently 31,000 people attended the meeting this year. I went last year, very interesting and enjoyable.

I wonder who needs an A320 though? Isn't that overkill unless you brought a ton of people? That's crazy.
