YYZ Runways - Thanks

Wed Aug 22, 2001 5:07 am

I would like to thanks to:
Gocaps16
BWIA330
Jean Leloup
Mark_D
Sharpnfuzzy
SKYSERVICE_330
and Red Panda
For giving me great tips and directions for spotting at YYZ.
I spent there 11 hrs spotting taking 16 rolls of pictures, first beside runway 5 (Skyservice Charters - I guess), then wind had changed and they were landing on runway 23, so we went to Boeing parking lot.
Weather was not so great but sometimes sun showed up for quite a bit of time.
I had great time in Toronto, I've met few local spotters which were very friendly. I even borrowed ladder from one of them to get pics of Mexicana A320 with 80 years sticker and Roots Air B727-200  Smile

Thanks all for helping me out.

Glad you had fun, and there were some other guys to hang out as well.

I've never really liked YYZ all that much --personally I prefer airports near water, mountains, even greenery, rather than expressways and industrial subdivisions -- but definitely it's the place to be in Canada to see the widest variety of aircraft being used.

I guess lots of people, especially the guys who work there , are looking for some big improvements in the ambiance when the new terminal opens up.
