I would like to thanks to:
and Red Panda
For giving me great tips and directions for spotting at YYZ.
I spent there 11 hrs spotting taking 16 rolls of pictures, first beside runway 5 (Skyservice Charters - I guess), then wind had changed and they were landing on runway 23, so we went to Boeing parking lot.
Weather was not so great but sometimes sun showed up for quite a bit of time.
I had great time in Toronto, I've met few local spotters which were very friendly. I even borrowed ladder from one of them to get pics of Mexicana A320 with 80 years sticker and Roots Air B727-200

Glad you had fun, and there were some other guys to hang out as well.
I've never really liked YYZ all that much --personally I prefer airports near water, mountains, even greenery, rather than expressways and industrial subdivisions -- but definitely it's the place to be in Canada to see the widest variety of aircraft being used.
I guess lots of people, especially the guys who work there , are looking for some big improvements in the ambiance when the new terminal opens up.
