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.

This would explain a mid-day BA aircraft coming in. Must have been the replacement.

Looks like it was G-BNWR. Arrived into YYC on 29th October as BA103 and departed on 30th as BA9603.

To quote my good friend who was crew on this flight....
'a box worth about £500,000 was broken in the flight deck'

Not a very technical term I am afraid but he said it was something quite serious!



Never give up..

It was probably the fridge... :P

Did BA9603 depart with any revenue pax?

Nah, with the Brits, they like their beer warm, so it probably was the teapot!

Doubtful, with the 9xxx series flight number.



Inspiration, move me brightly!

As part of the Commonwealth, I concur.



My mistake on my first reply. BA9603 was DEPARTING when I spotted her, flying over my workplace as I left around 16:00, MDT.

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.

I watched it takeoff (via camera from the Ops room) and it had a takeoff roll/climbout consistent with a loaded 767. Maybe they derated, I don't know for sure.

Why not have both. I like to have my coffee mid-morning and my earl gray late afternoon.

As per takeoff roll and climb / derate - I may be wrong, but I still believe, there would be noticeable difference inbetween emty/full...

"Actually, we've been converted to Coffee now. Well most of us. I still prefer good old cup of earl grey."

And What is wrong with drinking the same stuff that Chimpanzees used to like, Good Old PG Tips ?
or
The product from the people who put the T in BriTain - Guess Who ? Typhoo !!

When I grew up there, and subsequently left in 1975, Earl Grey wasn't around, and when I arrived in Canada then, the only stuff available was Tetley Tea - "Not available in England".

SO

It must have been the fridge that failed and decided to work for a change, so the warm beer wasn't available unless they preheated it in the warming ovens in the galley !!!!!!!!!

Okay, now you've got *my* attention (must be the red box).

You used to be able to get it in Calgary -- in the "whole foods" section of the London Drugs at McLeod Trail at Heritage.

Not exactly calming, but way, way better than (and better tasting than) the stuff in the blue and silver can.
