Glad I managed to capture one of the last remaining aircraft just before Christmas, as I had a feeling they were not going to stick around for long. Sad day indeed!

It will be sad to see it go. The aircraft did a flypast in Calgary earlier today, it was quite spectacular. The photos are on my site, and more will be coming. Certainly feel free to leave a message.

I saw a WJ 732 parked at YEG this morning, just away from the terminal. I guess its next flight will be a ferry flight.

WJ takes delivery of 2 more 736's this month, making 5 in total so far.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Here in the city we got:

FCWJ which did the flypast on Monday, GWJK, GWJU which is now stripped of WJ paint and stickers, and I believe GWWJ which I saw taxi down to one of the south hangers to possibly begin removal of paint/stickers.

There was also another one GWJE which was a stripped plane sitting beside the hanger but was not there today. It may have already flown out of the city to the desert.

There is another one which might be the one in Edmonton.. FLWJ??

A history wrapping up in the end..
What a history might I add..

I now look forward to the likes of First Air, Air North, CDN North and Skykings when the occasion comes for a visit.

Poor old planes. My last 732 flight was last November on Ryanair's EI-CNX, and by the look of things it WILL be my last. The 732 has been one of my favourite aircraft for years, and it's so sad to see their days are rapidly coming to an end. I think for many people, at least in its later days, the 732 was a 'love it or hate it' aircraft. It had its supporters but also many who couldn't wait to see the end of it. I definately fall into the first category, and so I say RIP 732's...LBA isn't quite the same anymore...

A true workhorse. A testament that they have lasted so long, after all even early 320s are being scrapped yet the 732 soldgiered on well into the 21st century.

So, that makes F9, HP, WN, and WJ who have retired their 732s. AS will soon join the group, and later DL. These airlines all owe their very existence, to some degree, to their 732s; F9, WN, and WJ all started with them. Who's next to de-classicify their fleet? AQ?

Quoting Orion737 (Reply 9):

In the 320's defence though, the earliest 320s were built before the last of the 732s rolled off the line in '88. Still though sad to see another 732 operator retire the bird.
