Does AC Use 767-200ER To SYD From YVR Via HNL?

Thu Mar 02, 2006 9:23 am

Hello all

I was just browsing some photos of AC 767-200ERs and I've found one picture with a comment regarding AC flying to SYD from YVR via HNL.

Quote ( A bit peculiar how tiny the registration is on this old bird. She is illuminted in gorgeous sunrise light during pushback for HNL & eventually SYD. )

Is this person correct or did he forgot AC uses 767-300ERs? Here's the link.
You will have to go to this link to read it his comment and see the picture of 767-200ER

The picture is of AC43, which is usually a 767-200ER. You can tell by the comment where the photographer says sunrise light, not sunset. AC43 has a scheduled departure of 0815 out of YVR and turns around in HNL as AC44 to YVR with a scheduled departure of 1340. AC33 leaves YVR at 1805.

Quoting Ha763 (Reply 2):
AC43

AC43 does not serve SYD though, that's where the photographer is incorrect.

After reading your comment HA 763 yes I just realized he said sunrise but could he mean sunset? From the a/c position and the background could it be sunset? It looks more of sunset instead of sunrise. If you look closely to the sunshine against the a/c to me it looks like more of sunset not sunrise.

It would be sunrise. If it were sunset, the photo would be backlit. The photographer was shooting east to west, as the photo was taken near the Avis lot (judging from the photographer's other photos that morning, as well as the location of the intl terminal expansion in the background).

You missed the 3rd sentence in my post:

No, Ha763 is correct! ACA043 arrives around noon. This flight is seasonal, from about November to April or May.

Actually ACA033 and ACA034 cross paths @ HNL around 2300 to 2330.
