It looks like there's a wingtip, but I can't quite see. I'm guessing an A310, but its only a guess.

I can see the wingtip fence so it must be an A310. Also, the windows are just not Boeing!

It seems to be a Boeing 757-200.

Without a doubt, A310. A couple of give-aways: tail cone exhaust set-up & window shape.

A310

why?

Tail shape
horizontal stabilizer shape
winglet
overwing exit
windows.

Now about the registration ... hmmm, I don't know if I could know that one. I could take a guess and be 25% correct!

A search here reveals no 757's or A300's for Royal, pretty conclusive: A310.

Search again,

Royal had 3 757's.

This just in:

The three 732's that were at the Canjet hangars in YHZ were supposed to depart today for YYZ then YEG, any ideas what is in YEG for them? Paintshop?

I am posting this here because most of the readers for this topic are of Canadian nationality or interest.

Actually, this site has a great deal of Royal 757 photos!

Nevertheless, it's a 310!



Next flight.... who knows.

Look closely at this plane.
Engines on a 757 are pretty much flat in the rear end and don't have that funny cone thing like on the A-310. also you can see part of the wingtip fence just aft of the 737.

Maybe they're off to YEG for painting or an overhaul...this could be a good sign!

All the USair planes from Canjet and Royal are heading to Edmonton. Most likely to the paint shop. I hear they have a good facility and good prices in Edmonton.

What I heard was that they were on the way to Winnipeg, and that is where Royal and Canjet had their aircraft configured in the past. Whether this is just a coincidence, I don't know.

Stay tuned ...



"it's kind of like an Airbus, it's an engineering marvel, but there's no sense of passion" -- J. Clarkson re: Coxster
25 Vref : I have a friend from Canjet who will be flying one of the aircraft and he has been told that all 10 airplanes are going to Edmonton. Even the Royal ai
26 Mr AirNZ : The emergency exit in the middle of the plane gives it away, its an A310-300.
27 Cessnapimp : Did he tell you why they are going to Edmonton? Is it in preparation for the April opening of Royal II? (still sketchy)
28 9V-SVE : A310 because of tail, winglet, and it looks like a widebody.
29 Red Panda : A310 for sure. It has airbus-style winglets. r panda
30 Vref : Hey there cessnapimp. They are not told of the reason for the trip to Edmonton. They are just basicly contracted to fly the trip by USair.
31 N766UA : I gurantee you it's a 75.
32 Vref : Hey N766UA Did you look at the pic at the beginning of the page? A310 all the way.
33 9V-SVA : It is an A310. It has a door on the wing, which the 757s dont. 9V-SVA
34 Captaingomes : Oh boy, it's final. It's an A310! I don't know how anybody, assuming they've actually read the other posts, can still think it's a 757. My mother coul
35 Post contains images Captaingomes : Vref, did you get any info as to why Edmonton though??? I'm sure the pilots flying there must know something. USAir wouldn't fly the aircraft to Edmon
36 ILS : Definately A310 by the gear and winglets.
37 Canadian747 : A310 by the window frames and the landing gears
38 CYLW : In doing some searching for the ex-Canjet planes, the TC database shows that most if not all the ex Canjet and Royal 737s are now owned by a company i
39 Traveler : Hello! I think it is an Airbus- A 310 Traveler
40 Rootsgirl : Could they be going to that new airline Canada West?
41 Layitontheline : Canada West will be using B752 equip exclusively.
42 Captaingomes : I have emailed the company, but honestly, I don't know if that will work. If I do get a reply back, I will share it with you all. Sounds interesting t
43 Cessnapimp : Canada West Airlines Inc. is only starting in December in YVR with two 752's. Charter only.
44 EGGD : It is 110% an A310, the wingtip, shape of the wing, undercarriage, width and height of the fuselage, shape of the tail, the engines, length from the w
45 Boeing747-700 : A310-300 you can see part of the Wing tip that the A300/310 share!!!
46 Layitontheline : A310
47 N766UA : Hey whatta ya know. In the small pic I'd swear it's a 757 but after I look at it in the big one there's the winglet! My bad!
48 Fritzi : 1000% A310. Compare the two landing gear doors. The A310 and B752 landing gear doors are pretty different. Fritzi
49 Peterba69 : It's me again. I looked at the search feature here just for Royal, they have A310's (GE CF6's), 757's (RR -535's), and 737s. The plane has CF6's, and

51 Post contains images Slawko : Looks like parsonage is an Aircraft broker, the transport site lists operators not owners, USAir still owns all of those(Canjet) planes, and the IMP g
52 Vref : You are right Slawko. It is cheaper to have the planes in YEG than to leave them i YYZ YHZ etc. That company in Edmonton will take care of the planes
53 Post contains images Cessnapimp : Who operates what Ex-CJ planes: As previously mentioned, they're all now "operated" by Structures Unlimited. Ex-Royal: FJLB disappeared from the face
