Vietnam Airlines At YYZ!

Thu Jun 30, 2005 2:02 am

Noticed a Vietnam Airlines 777 parked at the De-icing facility this morning. Police blocked off and surrounded the entire area, must have been some important dignitaries,
just interesting to see a new 777 into YYZ.

Great to see a VN 772 in YYZ!

I wish VN would start services to LHR!  Sad

How's the proposded plans for SFO going?

When are the two new ex.SU 772's due to arrive?

Where do they plan to fly these 772's to?

I wonder if this is the same 772 which spent this past weekend at YOW? The Vietanmese PM was in Ottawa.

The VN 777 was indeed carrying the leader of Vietnam. It spent the entire weekend here in Boston while he toured the city.

The very same plane was at SEA the week before, parked at the South Satellite. Awsome! Now why can't I remember to bring my camera to work???

I look forward VN expansion... IMO the one of the nicest livery around. It'd be so cool to see more of these beauties:

I think it's here overnight, so of those of you who are around, try to catch it depart tomorrow (Thursday) at some point. If anybody has more specific info, feel free to provide it!

It was still on the deicing pads at 7:30 this evening. There were several people taking pictures through the fence by the big GTAA hangar. Luckily it was parked in a position where none of the numerous light poles got in the way. It looked really good with the evening sun shining on it.
