Vanguard

Just a quick question
Anyone know why that was here last night. I was coming back in from a Cancun flight and when we were rolling past the Air Canada hangar, it was there parked with the dc-9's and the 737's. Just wondering if they are now flying into here??

I saw the same Vanguard MD-80 at YYZ yesterday.

Vanguard does not fly to YYZ. I read somewhere recently than a Vanguard MD-80 was due in YYZ for painting by AC. This must have been it.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Could be that or could be a charter. Vanguard has done a few charters lately to all over the place.

The newest MD-80 that Vanguard had painted was in the burgandy color scheme, just like their MD-87. Could it be possible that you mistook this dark color for black?

How many MD-80's will they buy or lease?
