Does it really take much energy just to put a (<) and a (>) before each link (Minus the parentheses.)

BR715-A1-30,

Give it a rest. Maybe he didn't know.

Great photo! Actually, that photo makes the 737 look very very good!

That is a really good picture of the 737. Here is another one of the plane with its new winglets.

Congrats on the pics! You YYC spotters make the rest of the country proud.  Smile

Aircraft flew into YYZ this morning as 652-653... and went out and saw it in person. Man, gotta say those winglets look even better in person. Very sleek.

Saw it while I was driving South on the 410 this morning at 0716, about a minute after it rotated off 23 and got a beautiful view of it as it climbed out. Very nice. Westjet should be very proud.

No amount of bragging necessary, those beautiful winglets speak for Westjets success in our marketplace... I was thinking before I almost rearended the X5 in front of me... jerkoff...

How many here have come close to "buying the farm" due to acute aeronautica fixationa... I know I have... many times!  Wow!

WestJet has a cadre of full-time aircraft washers in YYC.... I know a couple of them.... they spend a lot of time making sure those planes look clean.

It's beautiful, a lot nicer than the original model.
I find that the winglets make the planes look more "exclusive" in some way.

They were removed, it looks like. My only guess is that it was requested by WestJet that they be taken down.....

I know my picture was not that good but it got rejected none the less....here is a link to it. Notice that the winglet pattern almost lines up with the pattern on the tail. There wasn't a lot i could do really, i didn't even know it was coming in, i was walking dow this hill to catch a Nav Canada CL600! and there it was!!

Classic attempt to salvage a moment Grant  Smile
But Dont worry, you will see it more often at YYZ.
Maybe you will catch it arriving with me onboard when I arrive on the 29th.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Glad you guys were able to get a nice limited time of sneek a peek before removal was enforced. To those who never had a chance to see the pictures..

Too bad, so sad..  Big grin

There was never any photos of the winglets on here Big grin, you're all crazy...
