Thanks all for your assistance and comments folks...
I have made the necessary arrangements and parted with the cash (or should I say my credit card details). For the record Westjet from YYZ
(I chose a flight with a 2 hour connection at YYC
for $189.00 plus tax) and for the return an Air Canada direct flight on 767-300 ($159.00 plus tax). Will be at YYZ
for a couple of days and then to YVR
on 4th October thru 9th October. Hopefully I can negociate a deal with the Fairmont Hotel. Nice photos from there Kaz, are you aware of which room numbers offer these views?
One final question to anyone at YVR
with regard to floatplane activity.
I've flown the Beaver at Lake Hood AK
, I hear there's a Beech 18 over there on floats. Any information would be appreciated!
