I flew in the year 2000 to Calgary, western Canada with yes youve gussed it Canada 3000. It was one of the best flights I have ever been on in my life - 11 hours crusing at 37 thousand feet. When I was there I really looked forward to my return flight which mabye was a bad idea. We took off from Vancouver at about 6.15pm in excellent conditions - when we were flying over the Rockies for a stop in Calgary we went into a storm and the turbelence was masive as we came down in the pitch dark with the rain thundering against the plane and lightning going all around. As we approched all the lights went out - all the blinds were down as noone wanted to look out as the plane shock from side to side. We landed first time - thank goodness and we went to the hanger. I was sooooo relived. We were there about 1 hour before taking off again - luckly the rest of the flight was brill and it certainly has not put me off flying.
