Damm, Very tight!
Mark I was at the Airport today and I just happen to go by the WEstJet hangar and guess what?!~!
Two of its 3 hangar doors/gates were open full. But inside as I peered with my binocs I did not see the -800.
However the left most hangar bay had its door closed.. I smell something..
It is inside those darn doors. The second one has not arrived yet but I will go out again tomorrow morning to see if I can get any luck. Martinair will also fly in from YEG later on the day. The weather better be good or else! "shakes fist"
When I was there today, the weather was nice but it got ugly quickly. I got barely enough sun to snap pictures of the 744 that took off on 16. Regardless it was marvelous..
Allegro Air of Mexico also came today, didnt know they had charter serivces here throughout May, but I missed it
But Why on earth would it make a right turn (West) if its going to LHR?
Shouldnt it turn Left (East) ?
It would save them some fuel and time as well as operating cost. Everytime I see it takeoff on 16, it turned right(west) and then later turned around again(north) to fly parallel to the airport. A pretty weird procedure if you ask me.
Otherwise,: earlier in the day there was a super amazing plane that flew over calgary at FL310. Ya wouldnt belive it as it was EMIRATES Flight 777, which was a B773!!! Unbelivable, I must say, the plane looked real long even from the ground while it was cruising, and left quite a contrail. 5 minutes later a SAS A340 crisscrossed the 773's path and that was nice too. Spotted its distinct red engines thru my binocs.
