Just putting out a notice for the first gathering of the new year. I was thinking that we could get up to that old spot we used to use there near rwy23 if rwy23 is active sunday. I know that Marc (the new guy) and Myself are scheduled to be there, i am going to try for 2pm.

Anyone is welcome and new comers are also encouraged to email me for more info.

See you soon,

Grant

After all, I'm dying to get a shot like this...

So anybody new coming this time? How about B747-437B? Is FLYYUL coming? AirCanadaMan, are you back from Yukon yet? Maybe Transactoid will make it this time? It would be cool to see some new people!

Hey I was looking at some pics and this Gary Tines or something like that, i should email that guy to come out, he likes taking pictures and i bet he has a lot to show. I have one of his pics on my desktop, an A340 in the morning sun, really cool.

Ok, So with this snow it sould make for an interesting back drop for the mostly white AC fleet, and the growing SSV mostly white fleet. Can't wait for airlines like KLM to show up, Hey boys, was that the new colour scheme KLM aircraft that was at YYZ last weekend?? I have a feeling it was in. Something looked strange to me, and now that i saw the comparison, there could be a chance.

Oh, Drip, thats a quebec airport.....Neil's Favorite!! And As you can tell, its underserved!!!

I'll be there tonight, Friday, Jan 03, 03, Saturday Maybe, and sunday for sure!!

Take care guys,

Grant

YUKON!?

Nuno, saying that I'm from the Yukon is like telling Neil he's from YUL, not gonna happen. I'm in the Northwest Territories...I would of expected better from you.  Smile

Anyways, no, I'm flying the redeye back on Monday night, arriving first thing Tuesday morning into YYZ.

Besides, Im quite content spotting the twins on skis, the beat up First Air 732's and the DC-3's up here. (yeah right..)

Next time!

Sorry Derrick, you know us Torontonians don't pay attention to anywhere in Canada outside Toronto!  Big grin Hopefully next time we'll get a nice group together, including yourself, and some new people too.

So who's in for this coming Sunday for sure?

OH! Gary! Tall guy! Yeah, I know who that is, Grant would get along with him just fine. Does he take pictures?

Neil,

I leave in the later evening from here (YZF) on a 732 on First Air, arriving into YEG sometime around 9. From there its onto AC159 at 0:01 to YYZ arriving at 6:03.

As for the type of 732, its hard to say. It always depends on where the plane is arriving from. For example, if arriving from Edmonton, it would be all pax. Arriving from anywhere else (maybe other than Inuvik) it's usually combi, the further north its comming from, the less seats it has in it. Lately, C-GNWN has been configured into all pax (and completely falling apart) where as C-GNDC has been combi for sometime, I'm unaware of C-FNVT right now.

I'll check where its arriving from, then let you know what specific type it is. (if you're so interested)
