Get the heck out of here! I'm on my way to YLW in a couple of minutes, I'll see if I can snap a couple of pics of it. Might be to dark though.

ACDC8, the bird took off around 12:30 this afternoon, but wow what an awesome surprised that thing was. Heres a quick picture I snapped, I am extremely sorry for the quality, all I had was a camera phone.

TuffGong, too bad I missed it. Would have been neat to see it there. From the picture, looks like it's sitting on the North Apron by Taxiway A and RWY 16. I am very curious on what it was doing there. Perhaps, some airport familiarization training for up coming services? AC did that back in the summer of 2000 with the A319 before they started the YYZ flights.

Off topic, do you have any idea how long that CLS catering truck has been sitting on HWY 97 (across from Scandia)? It has a for sale sign on it. Kinda of an interesting sight when you drive by.

Well with all the talk about widebody traffic in the future that could be the case, maybe Air transat will be looking to use their own planes on the charter flights from YLW to the south that Westjet contracts from them.

I honestly have no idea, I rarely drive that part of the highway, I don't think I've ever seen it.
