Tue Dec 02, 2003 10:00 am

Air Canada painted C-GAUB(601) in Star Alliance colors.

I flew it from YUL to YYZ on November 29.

Nice shot Pascal! Good ol' GAUB was wearing its paint a little thin. Good to know that they will keep her for a while longer. Those 767-233's are solid little bitches and have proven invaluable in the "Golden triangle" corridor. Last time I flew on her last year, she still looked great inside, albeit the worn corner here and there and the rubber circle patterns on the green rubber mats in the galleys being flushed out by years of busy F/A shoes twisting and turning on the 400 series flights. You go girl!

Why did they choose to paint a 767 in Star Alliance Colours? Won't the 767 be retired soon anyway? It would've been nice if they got the A346 and painted it in Star Alliance Colours!

Just a guess, but it would probably look something like this  Big grin:

Nice pic, Pascal. I like the one you snapped of the BW343, also.
Yeah... Sorry I had to bail so early, also. I had several special ladies waiting for me (heh heh). I trust our Captain Gomes proved to be a worthy ambassador of the GTAE. By the way, did either you or Mark (or anyone else here for that matter) watch the CBS News Magazine, tonight (Mon. Dec 1st). They spotlighted the T-New trials, etc. We saw Slawko on TV!! (several times)
Anyway, plane spotting at YUL sounds cool to me.

Nice shot Pascal! Was a pleasure to hang out with you and Mark. We certainly owe it to them to make a visit up to Montreal. We are sure to spot plenty more AC A320's there but there are some pretty cool birds worth shooting there (Hydro Quebec Dash 8's, Nolinor Convairs) that are pretty YUL exclusive. Let's try and get something together!

Because there is no such plane on order!
Maybe AC will make a decision either about the 2 A345 currently parked in France or about ordering A346s but we have to wait until they exit the CCAA.

According to another forum there are plans to also paint an AC A340-300 and another 767 in the new *A colours.

Tony,

did either you or Mark (or anyone else here for that matter) watch the CBS News Magazine, tonight (Mon. Dec 1st). They spotlighted the T-New trials, etc. We saw Slawko on TV!! (several times)

Did you mean CBC? They had a 14 minute segment on "The National". I saw myself on it 3 times - for a total of nearly 5 seconds  Smile

Would anyone happen to know the schedule of the aircraft?
