YVR - Republic Of France Aircraft

Thu Dec 01, 2011 10:04 pm

I am just sitting here at Vancouver International Airport, on Thursday December 1.

While waiting for my flight, could not help put notice a new AC at YVR,

I look further and notice it has winglets painted in the France Flag,

After further investiagtion, notice "Republic of France" on the side of the Aircraft.

Anyone why know why we have such a rare vistor here today.

will try and get a photo.

Just a guess that it might be a fuel stop en route to or from Papeete (Tahiti). I think they've stopped at YVR before on that route.
