Emirates A380 In Toronto

As most already know EK will start A380 services to YYZ on June first. And as this is just about a week away I was just curious about where the best places would be to go see it. I've never been spotting at YYZ but I'm aware of the Wendy's at airport road but I was wondering if there were any other areas whee you could catch a good view of the aircraft. I am guessing there will be quite a few Toronto spotters who will be out to catch it. Thanks for the info.

It will vary widely on weather conditions which runway it lands on. Check the wind conditions that day and you can often see which way the planes are landing when approaching the airport. When the time gets closer find someone with a radio. When the aircraft checks in with arrivals they will tell them which runway they are being directed to. You will see lots of guys with cameras and radios I am sure. If they run - follow  Smile.

YYZ spotting is a shadow of its former self. Old T1 garage was the greatest place to spot from. Then the Boeing(Douglas) parking lot was closed to the public. FedEx hill comes to mind. Now you have to mindful of the security around the perimeter. Since 9/11, it has been very tight and you don't want to be seen loitering around at the end of any runways. If you time it just right you could slip in towards the cargo terminals and midfield terminal and stop briefly to watch 33L landings. If you follow the above advice in the previous post you would be fine.

Should be a great day. I guess there is not going to be any test flight before the actual service starts? Hopefully all goes smoothly.

For arrivals to 24R the parking lot of Aviation World (on Carlingview) is a real good spot and no one will hassle you for hanging out there.

Well my feeling is it will probably be on the 24s, in that case, Aviation World or Arizona's on Carlingview are probably the best option.

If for some reason they use 23, Wendy's is an option, as is where FedEx hill was, depending what kind of shot you want to get.

If they are using the 6s there are a couple options: convair drive at the top of the hill, but the PRP may (likely will of more than 2-3 are there) kick people out of there. Along the fence along convair same issue. Enterprise Rd off Dixie is about the only other spot for the 6s but the view is limited.

For 06 there are spots on Dixie, and there is a Tim Hortons at Mid-Way that has a decent view. Again Fedex can work for 06 if you want to see during roll-out

For the 13/31s... 13L: Not many options... out near the Jet Center is about it
31R... Explorer Rd south of the 401 is the only spot i know of
13R: Where the connie was off of Derry (skyservice hangar) is one option, and its safe enough
31L: Off of Courtney Park there are some hills that give a decent view, finding somewhere to park though may be difficult. Also there is the infield but again with police issues.

If the plane is landing on 31L/15R you can park in the infield cargo area with no problem and get a great shot of touch down roll out. However, I would think this is the least likely runway for them to use.

I flew on the 23rd on VS from JFK and while awaiting in the lounge I saw EK a380 parked getting prepped for its late evening flight, quite surprised I got to see it honestly, thought it already switched to YYZ.

You will know between 5 and 10 minutes before it lands which runway. You will have it down to which general direction by which direction the flights are landing barring a change in wind direction. So it won't be a matter of driving from one side of the airport to another.

And while waiting as an added bonus - if you are into model airplanes - you can check out Aviation World if (it is open).

Or the Landing Strip next door (if it isn't).

Hello all,

Talk around the tower indicates that we will likely use either runway 05 or 23 (depending on winds).

If the A380 lands on 24L or 06R, it can't stop short of the inner runway and be clear of the runway behind it - SO, to avoid this the north runway will likely be used.

Anything can happen at the last minute but I'm 90% sure of a 05 or 23 landing.

I'm working that afternoon, looking forward to it!

Take Care!

There are no runway numbered 13 or 31. the North West/South East runways are 15 and 33.

Apparantly (I can't give you a source) Emirates want 24R, 6L, or 33R.

no - you are allowed to drive right into the infield and park in a parking lot that is open to the public, next to buildings located there (customs hq among others, IIRC)... you can see 31L from the inside.

To be fair to the otherwise zealous security, it was one of them who pointed me in that direction, when chasing me away from the end of 6R a few years back.

Yes 33 not 31, a typo.

I can see why Emirates would want the 6/24 combo because it is much closer to their gate in T1 with a much straighter/simpler taxi route.

From an airtraffic controllers perspective though the 6/24 parallel runways have departures on the long and arrivals on the shorter. Having the A380 land on the longer will have take more time as it interupts the normal rhythm. That coupled with the increased wake separation as well. 5/23 would mean just increased wake separation. That is a very busy time for landing and departures so it will be interesting.

Also depends on who is in the tower and how badly they want pics of the aircraft either landing or taxi-ing. Airshows and the flybys for the boys in the tower are just an example of controllers who know what they want  Smile.

That has not been my experience as a spotter/photographer since 1992. I would say that 24R is used for arrivals far more frequently than 24L, which is 500' (LDA) shorter than 24R. Of course there are other variables which come into play - such as amount of cross-wind component, and what percentage of the traffic is arriving/departing on 23.

In any event the runway of choice for Emirates would be 24R, since it has the shortest approach for aircraft coming from the east as well as shorter taxi distance than any runway except 15R and the sixes.

I was thinking the same thing. I don't think I've ever seen an approach to 24L while spotting on Carlingview.
