The caption states the aircraft is at the military ramp-probably a military charter flight.

TWA does fly to Dorval in Montreal from St. Louis. I don't really know why it is in St. Hubert, unless it made an emergency landing. That still seems since they could have landed in either Dorval or Mirabel, which have longer runways.

Hi all.
TWA does not fly to Montreal at all.
St-Hubert airport has no regular flights but used to had some -Royal used it for flights to Toronto.
The airport is a military base coupled with a general aviation component. P&W also uses it as they have a plant next to it.
If the TWA aircraft is there, it is most problably because a sport team used it for a charter flight. Most sports team that fly in on charters go through St-Hubert for convenience.

Im not sure anymore with the St Louis Cardinals baseball team, but they at one time used TWA as their carrier. But something wants to tell me that they are currently carried by Southwest Airlines. But the Cardinals did have a series in Montreal on August 23, 24, and 25 of this year. Maybe that would explain it if sports teams prefer to use this airport.

The only Canadian city TWA has scheduled flights into is CYVR (Vancouver).The flight in question is most likely a charter.

TWA also has 4 scheduled flights into Toronto daily, in addition to the flights into Vancouver.

Your right Brian TWA does go into Toronto as well as Vancouver. I should have checked before I wrote.

Thanks
