YYZ July 14 And WYD

Mon Jul 15, 2002 10:24 am

Today was a great day to spot planes just a little bit hot, I stayed in the Boeing lot for 3.5 hours! There were lots of cars and people all the time.

Specials:
United B752
Mexicana B752
Air Transat A333
AC 6 out of 8 A333 arrived
Jetsgo 2x M83 arrived
Delta B738 instead of M88
KLM B744 instead of B743

Btw, any idea what special planes will come in for the World Youth Day 2002, if any?

What time did the CX plane come in? I was there for the afternoon only. CX plane usually comes at night.

Also seen was a 732 with AC Jetz colours.

I heard that the Pope will be comming here for World Youth Day. Does anyone know what airline he's flying on? Alitalia?
I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

R Panda,

About 2 months ago (May 24) I saw a CX 343 depart in the morning, I was quite surprised! What's up with that plane?

Good observation. Back in May, we have two over-night delays. They are due to F/O sickness.

Last week, we have one over-night delay due to refueling problem of B-HXA.

I don't know who the Pope is flying on but last night coming from Italy, Skyservice transported the pallet for the huge cross that will be travelling with the Pope.

And next Sunday, Skyservice will be bringing the huge cross that mounts on the pallet from Rome. Also, last night we had a lot of nuns and priests on board. Apparently next Sunday we will be bringing some VIP priests over to YYZ from Rome. Thats all I know so far.

Did SSV use the 333 to transport the cross?

Red Panda, last week's overnight delay WAS NOT due to refuelling problem on B-HXA. It was due to captain sickness. Get it straight, big eat!!!
