Close Call At YYZ!

Fri Apr 02, 2004 6:17 am

a Friend shares with me:

Last night at 18:10 while going eastbound on Airport Rd, an Air Canada A340 came close to the fence at Airport Rd, including close to the Petro Canada Gas Station. Thought it was not going to make it...must have been to heavy and somone messed up on the payload.....I really did not think that she was going to make it off the ground...Tires came off the ground within feet of the end runway wall.....Did anyone else see this?

If this isn't your attempt at an AFJ, your "sharing friend" obviously knows that you are extremely gullible!!

Considering Airport Rd. Runs North/South not East/West... I think this yet another poor AFJ.  Insane

April Fool's Day is the worst day for aviation topics...so much b/s  Pissed It gets depressing after awhile. Hopefully they stop tomorrow.

It gets depressing after awhile.

Only after reading the truly unimaginative ones... like this one, which is not even close to plausible.  Insane

Tell me about it!! This is just one more reason why I hate AFD on the Internet. But I wouldn't say it gets depressing after a while - it actually gets really annoying after a while!

Yes, Samurai777, you could also put it that away. Annoyed is how I feel too about this.
