AC 777 At YUL Today

Thu Apr 12, 2007 7:16 am

I had a pleasant surprise today while driving by the airport today: the new AC 777 was here. A gorgeous beast. Looks great in the Colgate tube colours. I assume it was making a short run to YYZ as I saw it turn to the west shortly after takeoff. I thought YUL would have seen the last of her when she left for YYZ the last time. This may be wishful thinking, but are we going to see this aircraft more often here? When is the second one coming?

Fin 731 is currently on a YYZ-YUL-YYZ-LHR routing on a daily basis, so she'll be there pretty much every day for a little while at least. The short flight is to help familiarize the pilots to the aircraft.

Fin 732 (IMO) should be here in the short term as well, as I've seen pictures of it at PAE in full colors, looking ready to go.
Aviation is proof that, given the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.
