Antonev At YYZ...

Wed Jun 21, 2006 5:12 am

Just wondering, what business does the Antonev have at YYZ every day?
I have been visiting the airport quite often latly and every time i am there, it is too.
Any info would be appreciated

I believe they bring in wings and aircraft parts for the Bombardier plant in Downsivew..

But you are correct, they used to be a rare sight, now we see at least a couple every week.
I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

I'm not too familiar with Bombardier, but do they produce the Q400 in downsview? if they do, there's your explanation as to why it's been frequenting YYZ more often.

Yes, they do, but that's not the reason for the AN-124s. The Global Express is assembled at Downsview, and the wings plus some fuselage parts are produced in Japan. They are delivered to YYZ, presumably because the AN-124 can't get in and out of YZD.
