Suprised to see a 757 baseball charter, if they want to go big just bring a 747.

Over the years alot of pro team charters to YYZ have used YHM or YYZ.

I guess the rationale for one or the other is a combination of slot availability, aircraft parking availability/cost, landing fees, ground handling cost, ground transport. etc etc

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

I hear it happens fairly frequently. I notice that the arrival time is 12:56am, and eventhough aircraft are allowed to land at that time in YYZ, if they are delayed they'd have to divert to YHM anyways. Costs are lower in YHM too. The bus ride wont be too bad for them, about an hour to downtown, versus half hour from YYZ.

Tonight must be a good time to go out and spot at YHM. Is there any hockey team they fly charter to YHM and play game at Copps Coliseum?

Neil,

Noise abatement / curfew is the main reason for the sports charters using YHM over the years.

Slot reservation at YYZ is another factor occasionally.

Red Panda - No, the Hamilton Bulldogs (the Montreal Canadiens farm team) are part of the AHL, and they travel by bus generally. If they do charter, it's a rare occurence.

Thanks Andy.....I forgot about the 24hr ops at YHM. I wish YYZ was 24 hours.
