Gotta love the looks of the 736 - the "sports-car" of the 737NG family with its big wings and tail and short fuselage!

Almost looks like a re-engined 100! Very cool! Gives new meaning to the original nickname of "guppy".

The size of those WESTJET titles sure make the thing look small overall. A nice 737SP.

I'm also curious about the installation of the winglets. Where/when will it be done, and how long is the certification process supposed to take?

Why can't Boeing just put the winglets on when building the plane? After all, it is a Boeing feature, isn't it?

No, they will not be a factory option.

WestJet will be taking the plunge with Aviation Partners, I beleive certification will be thrid quarter '06.

Hate mail, over photo's? Pathetic. Thanks very much for the pictures which I always appreciate. After all the incremental orders Westjet have placed for the 736 it's finally good to see the real thing.

Well I am heading out today to see what happens. Weather is gona suck so if I see it, I will take a few pictures but I honestly am not expecting much.
If the 736 fails to arrive, then I give up and will just head back home.
I expect to see it anywhere from 1pm-5pm

A half-dozen or so, I believe. They might have upgraded some options to orders in the past few months, not sure.

Given a choice, I'd expect it sometime before 1600. Of course, that could change.....

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Kay, I just got back from the airport. As I suspected the weather got from bad to worse. I'm Drenched! No WestJet 737-600 though so I was not too happy.
I took a look at the hangars and all 3 bays are wide open with the third one being occupied by a 737-800 GJWS.

However, NOW it is listed.. Flight 9001 arriving at 5:34pm local..
I might return. We shall see.

I think it will be delayed.

On second thought, I am going to stay home. It is cloudy, cold, wet, and dark so I don't think it is worth the trip.

Tomorrow morning perhaps.

>> Why can't Boeing just put the winglets on when building the plane? After all, it is a Boeing feature, isn't it?

Boeing can, and does, install winglets in-house for newly built 737-700 and 737-800 for those customers who opt for them. If the airline decides after delivery that they would like winglet retrofit (sort of like WN), then Aviation Partners (who supplies the winglets to Boeing in the factory) handels the instillation.

Since winglets have yet to be certified on the 737-600, it makes sense that Boeing would manufacture the airplane without them, and simply allow WestJet/Aviation Partners to handle the instillation.

Hey everyone, I am watching the flight on AirNav flight tracker and it is just south of Kelowna at 390, 01:23 UTC, so will be in Calgary within the hour.

Adding to that, all 737s are built first without their winglets. If you see any of Royal's WN pictures of aircraft just out of the paint shop, they usually don't have winglets on. They are tested first without and then the winglets are added.

actually all WN planes are having them installed as part of the normal build process, but this wasn't always the case...
