There are several who come to mind, I couldn't possible narrow it down to one to mention here.
If you don't care for long stories, you may wish to stop reading now.
First I'll talk about two A320s who I dearly love from AC
's fleet. - C-FNVU and C-FFWN.
C-FNVU holds a special place in my heart, because I have flown on this particular aircraft more times than any other in AC
's fleet. These flights where all in the period of time where it was painted in the "Tango" colours. I took so many trips with this plane, and have made countless memories. After it was repainted back into AC
colours, I saw it just one more time in YVR
. I have note seen C-FNVU since 2005. Though I do have an A320 on an upcoming trip I have booked on AC
, so maybe, just maybe..
But C-FFWN, the Symphony of Voices, is the aircraft which is the closest to my heart. I had an unforgettable flight with this brilliant A320 in 2004, back in a time when I had not yet discovered A.net, and my knowledge of aviation was still somewhat limited. So when I went to board my AC
flight from YYT
, a blindingly red A320 shining in the colours of the Canadian flag, was about the last thing I had expected to see. I had no idea what was going on! But when I boarded, I saw the familiar interior, and I knew there was no mistake. Since then, I always keep an eye out for it, sometimes just appearing as a whisper of red sailing through a low cloud. Though it has recently been repainted, I occasionally see it parked at the gate in YVR
, and I am instantly reminded of all the fun times I've had trying to spot, (and sometimes even chasing after
) this lovely bird.
And of course I could not make a post regarding my favorite of anything without mentioning Horizon Air!
I love all of the QX
aircraft I've had the privileged of flying on. But the one who is coming to mind at the moment is N425QX. Though I have yet to set foot inside Skittles, I have loads of memories of the times I've been lucky enough to spot this elusive Q400!
Finally, I must mention C-GQRT and C-GWVK. The first being the Glider I flew my very first solo in,
and C-GWVK, the Cessna 150 in which I had my first solo in a powered aircraft, and achieved my PPL in.
I could go on, but..
I love these two!! I've flown on one, and have frequently spotted the other.. gotta admit I did crack up first time I saw the latter.. GONR does raise an eyebrow for an airplane too.
