Happy Birthday.....

I just did a search on my birthday - September 28th 1979 - and the 2 results are below. The fact that there's an AF Caravelle in old colours makes me feel seriously old! I'm still only 24 though....!

Not to bring any sadness to this conversation, but i believe C-FTNG has been broken up.

I could be wrong, but it was my understanding that it was to be broken up a few months ago, after service many faithful years with Air Canada, and Air Transat (I'm sure it served other airlines as well in between).

FTNG will hold a special moment in my heart, as it was the ONLY L-1011 I was ever to fly, from CUN-YYZ back in 2000.

A beauty until she died.

PS, Happy Birthday  Smile

Hi all,

Thanks for your replies, I have to say, I did a search a while ago hopeing there was a 757 or 767, built, as 1982 was the 757 / 767 days, but the closet I got was I think the 14th August 1982 first flight of a UA 767-200

I know what you do not have in common. In about 15 years you might start lying about your age. The plane will not. Anyway, happy birthday Smile

"not you, the plane!  Smile "

I'm sure the plane is considerable older than 22. He was referring to the picture being shot the same day he was born.

However, In 15 years, the picture will still be an object of beauty. As for Leigh.....

Slightly off topic, but why does C-FTNG sound so familiar to me? I'm running that reg around in head right now because I'm positive I've heard it somewhere before. A google doesn't turn up anything interesting or out of the ordinary though. Probably just me.

There are no pictures of my birthday (August 22, 1977) but these are close to it.

lol Squirrel, good try but that's not it  Smile I think I was getting it confused with C-FGNL. Both seem to roll off the tounge easily. C-FGNL was our local air ambulance until it was retired a few years ago. At the time it was, (and still is?), the highest time King Air 100 ever built. I'd have to do some searching to find the number of hours on the airframe.
