Ok, The Westjet Hangar's office space is being expanded, as you might have noticed they have also just generously built a new parking lot (between the firehall and Hangar). There are the ton of F-28's parked just off of McCall Landing (small road off of McCall Way, right near where the Fed Ex A310 parks), since they are now retired they have added more by Avmax, this is probably where they were moving about.

Ooh ahh! This is interesting.. I have heard rumours a few weeks ago saying that there will be some Rwy Maintenance at our airport and some of our traffic may be rerouted via YEG.
Such as the international ones..

Also last weekend, (Saturday) did anybody see 6 F-18 Hornets of Cold Lake coming in to YYC? They all landed at the same time one after another and parked at Shell.. I didnt see em but someone emailed me and showed me some pictures of the stuff..

And then there are those Vickers VC-10..?!

And if anybody didnt check out the SSV post. Looks like a 2nd A333 will join in December and it will be based here.  Smile lalala!
