Was flying out of YYC yesterday morning. Noticed a BA 767 sitting in a remote ramp. Since they have evening arr/dep figured smtg was wrong. Anyone knows what happened? I mean most probably it went tech, but might be smtg else.

Quoting Speedbirdie (Reply 4): To quote my good friend who was crew on this flight....
'a box worth about £500,000 was broken in the flight deck'
Quoting sbon (Reply 5): It was probably the fridge... :P
When I was in Calgary last -- 10/21-10/25 -- I found the balcony of my hotel room perfectly adequate for chilling snacks -- most especially with the snow we had on the 25th.
I've been on flights that were canceled because of burnt-out windshield-wiper motors; cargo doors falling off their hinges; entry doors not seating themselves correctly on their seals; flat tires (we had to get off the plane while they fixed it), and failed cockpit computers.
I can see the last item costing GBP 500,000 to completely replace.

...yet this week, we have partially cloudy skies with temperatures ranging from 10C (50F) to 15C (59F)...not too shabby for the beginning of November.
So, a piece that costs over $800,000.00 CDN ? Must be a computer.
