It's too bad I didn't meet more of you when I was in town over the weekend. You all missed my chorus of "booooooo's" whenever a WJ plane landed and thunderous applause when AC landed (my hands were sore after a few hours). And of course, laughting and pointing whenever AA, Comair or ASA landed (the FAA apparently doesn't teach crosswind landings to it's ATPs). It was pricelss, hahahahahaha!
Next time I'm around, I'll try to be more flexible to meet more of you. Enjoy your weekend!

Didn't see nor hear about the Stones flying into town. However, I should be able to make it over to Pearson for either of the two days to go see some airplanes.
Threshold Aviation is a good place to meet. For those aviation enthusiasts and employees alike, it's a great place to purchase all your aviation related paraphernalia. FedEx is where we can begin our planespotting event. We can then discuss whatever arrangments for visiting the roof-top of T1.
As a matter of fact, you can swing by Threshold Aviation enroute to FedEx. Pop in and say hello.

Lymanm...why don't you like Westjet?
I love WJ for many reasons, including:
1. They are not based in YUL (unlike AC, which is forced to be).
2. They do not fly to YUL (they seem to be profitable WITHOUT YUL service).
3. They fly NG's, not plastic.
4. They DO fly to YYZ.
5. They are putting YHM on-the-map!
6. They are profitable (subsidized by no govt).
7. They are Canada's proud answer to Southwest and Ryanair.
8. No passenger ever gets food poisoning on a WJ flight.
I could go on and on......
Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
