I was there yeasterday. It was a sad view. The heliport was overcrowded (on a wednesday!!!) with people, not the usual spotter, but people, who could not believe, what they saw: a grounded Swissair fleet.

The ultimate provocation was a car, which was parked at the heliport, with the following ad "Credit Suisse - The Smart way of banking" (or something similar).

An oddly beautiful sight, as sad as it is....

Almost as eerily aesthetic as the photos of Canadian airports on 11/09....

Yes, it is indeed a sad sight, but good news and opportunities for spotters and registration collectors!

It's a strange sight, to see almost an entire fleet grounded.

By the way, does anybody know where I can find some images of Canadian airports after 11/9?
