Reminds me of the scary moment I walked on the wing of the SV 747-SP, scary? no but very scary trying to get back into the door! it seemed easy to jump on wing from the door, but trying to get back inside was the tricky part, cause the door isnt exactly on the wing, its on the leading edge. I had to grab a plastic sissy bar on the door to get back in.

I saw this thread, wondered why they would be going there, then I was about to ask inappropriately whether they have casinos and professional ladies in Toronto, and thought "that will get my comments deleted".

But the fact that they've just been to Las Vegas makes me think that my scurrilous and suspicious mind was actually probably right. Atlantic City isn't very far from Newark, is it?

Apparently this is a shopping trip...yes you read correctly...if you remember an SV 747SP was here in YYZ 2 yrs ago around this time for the same purpose...in fact it was actually arranged that the Eaton Centre stay open 3 hours later just for them to shop...the flt has 60 pax and 22, yes 22 crew members coming off. Should be interesting.

I don't remember an SP 2 years ago. On 7/29/05 There was an L1011 of the Saudi Royal Flight - HZ-HM6.

Now that I come to think of it, in early August I was waiting for a 747SP from Washington (I think) but I was distracted by an A340 going off the end of runway 24L and never did see the 747. Actually, it didn't arrive until the following day.

Most likely the active... looking at the winds... I would assume rwy 23 so at the TD bank on Airport rd is a good start? Or down the back of Carlingview somewhere if its going to be 24L
