Hey Westjet_737,

That a/c departed YYT this morning around 9:35am. I saw it while I was pulling up for work. It was just starting its takeoff roll. I'm not too sure of the flight number because they have changed this week, but it used to be flt 107 that went from YYT-YYZ-YYC-YVR.
It looked nice. I did'nt get to see it close-up, but it looked alright.
Hope to see it again soon.

I was lucky enough to see the two of them at YYZ on Saturday afternoon, I saw one parked over near 58, and the other was moved way towards 70 something near T1.

I at first disliked the scheme, but now that I saw it, its not half bad.

I was talking to a flight attendant that day as well, he was lucky enough (as he said) to ride it down to Washington on Friday.
He mentioned it was not fitted with the new interiors, still the old rubby dark blue CP seats, including business class and he said the galley was simple and worn.

So I assume they are still using them on mainline, till startup.

Any one See the United 747-400 at all on the 16th, other then me?

I was holding short for depature and I looked out to see what i was holding short for and I see this 744 turn final at like 50* bank at about 2 miles final. It landed and i asked ATC what was it doing here and he quickly said
"katana papa mike foxtrot, it was a medical emerency, taxi to position runway 34 but move up so i can place a a320 behind ya"

At about 1 1/2 hours later I was landing on 25 and saw it holding short of 16 and after i was cleared to land i hear "United 931 Heavy, Taxi to postion 34"
As i landed and exited i started taxing south and the 744 started to roll and rotated and pretty much flew right over us... It was sweet.

Anyone have any details on it?

I was at YUL when Tango came in - completely caught me off guard and surprised the heck out of me. It was a good surprise though. One of those moments when I actually did have my camera and enough film for a change!!!  Smile When that A320 came in there was no doubt about it. The Tango look is very distinctive - but it's still a bit too white (would be nice to see some purple on the engines...)

Otherwise, compared to the AC tail colour scheme I like Tango better.

I missed both planes  Sad
VonRichoften had told me about his trip to YYC that day and he was Lucky enough that he took some shots of the 744 that came in on the 34.
What time did it come in anyways??
I heard it left liek at 17:15 of yesterday..

It was LHR to SFO ..
Also today this mornign a Boeing 737-800 came in.
Miami Air it was, probably here to drop off the Florida Panthers, but I might go out and shoot a roll of this one.. Unless if it left..which would stink too.

I have to say I missed the UAL 744 yesterday. But did any of you see the C17 parked at the terminal? It was right next to the L1011.

I did see the AC Tango landing on 28 last night at around 6:30 or so, looks good if you ask me.  Smile

Hey WJV04 do you fly out of Calgary Flight? I'm just working on my instructor rating there right now.

Yap No prob.. Unfortuneatly I cant confirm if it is still there.. the Miami Air 738..
This past few days has been really interesting in Calgary..
Too bad when Alaska comes in, it will be on the worst time of the day for spotting.

Hey Bo, I thought Alaskan was postponing starting service to Calgary. Or have they decided to start it soon? I remember it was originally supposed to be here in October, but then got put on hiatus after 9/11.

I'm sure I've seen you around Calgary flight before Shane. I've been there since last February 2000. Geoff is a good instructor, although I have never had the chance to fly with him.

I love your idea of the spotters club for YYC. I know Bo and Chris will like it as well, we've hit up the spot for a day of spotting once. A good time! Keep me posted.

I must admit that I am very unimpressed with the livery and the name. There must be a meaning to Tango in Canada that I am not aware of. This ranks along with buzz as a bad name IMO.


Is grammar no longer taught is schools? Saying "me and her" or some such implies illiteracy.

Twaneedsnohelp - Tango is "hubbed" in Toronto. Most all of it's flights originate there.

The Calgary spotter idea is a great one! You should look into something similar to what Matt Lee has with the Winnipeg aviation forum.
