Not a schedule that I made, but when I worked up north, our routing was JHL-YKA-YLW and sometimes JHL-YVR-YCD-YKA-YLW. Miss that short YKA-YLW hop on the 737-200. Once I got booked on a YFI -YYC flight, booked a flight YYC-YEG to meet a friend and flew back to YYC to catch a flight to YVR then LAX a...Jump to post
I firmly believe he is the anti-christ. He has single-handedly ruined music. (For those not in the know: the next time you see someone drop a fork on the floor on a reality-TV show accompanied by a MIDI-programmed 300 piece orchestra, 60 timpanies, 100 foot bass drums going to 15 Hz in surround, ev...Jump to post

Last time I did an international flight out of YVR was in 2016 so I don't know if it changed since then but you could (can) connect between international and domestic airside but there was (is) a small security checkpoint between the C and D gates that you still had to go through but it was faster t...Jump to post
A340 followed by the L1011, DC10/MD11 and 747.
Widebody twin jets are like SUVS, they're everywhere, look the same and have no personality.
Hard to believe, but I've flown on many types, yet some how, all these years, I've still managed to avoid the 777 - haven't logged a single flight on one.
I live in Richmond BC and we have a bylaw that prohibits self serve gas stations, but most people pump their own gas anyways. I'm not a fan of full service stations, had one attendant put a nick in my paint with the nozzle and another unscrewed the gas cap while my engine was still running causing a...Jump to post
As far as the service go, definitely check your contract, if its prepaid or complimentary service from the manufacturer, then you can take it to any dealership, but if it was a promotion from the dealership specifically, then it would more than likely only be valid at that particular dealership. The...Jump to post
Flew from YLW to SEA with QX a few years back on one of their Q400s. Shortly after take off, the pilot came on the PA and said that they were having a pressurization issue so we'd have to fly at a lower altitude until they can resolve it. They eventually fixed it and we continued our climb, was a re...Jump to post
It was probably picked up in a surplus auction of some sort. They didn't know what it was but decided it was just about the right size to store some stuff in without having to go and build a proper shed and go through the paperwork hassle of putting out a RFP for. Or it may have ended up at a shipp...Jump to post

One might imagine a conversation similar to the one I had some 30 years ago, when I tried to bring home a DEC KI-10 that was going to be salvaged. He: Hon! Guess what! They were junking this cargo container and I snagged it! We'll put it in the garden and make a planter out of it! She: No we're not...Jump to post
Pretty much anything that goes inside of an airplane has some certification for flame propagation, self extinguishing, and how long it can contain a fire. And here I thought it was in reference to "fuel burn rate" - thanks for that, completely makes sense :bigthumbsup: What I posted was a...Jump to post

Probably the 737 series for me, followed by the Dash 8 series.
Widebodies would probably be a close tie between the B747 and MD11.
Thanks for all the replies, super grateful with all the input. I went by it yesterday again and took a picture of the other placard, quite a bit more info on that, not sure why I didn't take a picture of it the first time. So, looks like the manufacturer was Brooks and Perkins out of Michigan and th...Jump to post
The M in BMB, in current ULD standards, implies a base plate dimension of 96x125 inch. It's hard to tell if it's that big from the pictures. Maybe its a custom container only used by CP Air? Its a good 5 feet tall, 4 feet wide and 3 feet deep (rough estimates). Whats so bizarre about it is that its...Jump to post
Saw this yesterday, cemented down in a school playground of all places. Anyone have an idea what it may have been used for? I'm thinking for luggage or something but I've never seen a container like this one before. https://i.postimg.cc/BbjXQKZK/IMG-5761.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/pdPr57Xx/IMG-5759.jp...Jump to post
We don't really get a choice here in BC, you book your appointment and when you get your booking, they give you whats ever on the menu that day. I lucked out, got my first dose of Prizer last week. Other than a little tenderness right at the injection point (which I normally get even during blood te...Jump to post
Ah, I remember doing trips like that back in the FS9 days :cloudnine: Came up with some pretty obscure and interesting routings, sometimes I'd have the whole trip planned and other times just decide where to fly to next on a whim. I remember when we used to have FS screenshot competitions here. Good...Jump to post

This was the excuse back in the mid 80s.
Then it shifted to heavy metal music.
Then it shifted to video games.
Then it shifted to rap music.
And so on and so forth.
The Maritimes are so funny... can support scheduled service to Europe on multiple carriers, but (for the most part) not the likes of YVR/SFO/LAX. Worth noting that all of the above are essentially the same distance, with the California destinations actually being a little longer. And yes, I complet...Jump to post
Pretty sure WS did YVR-YHZ a few years back, or maybe it was YVR-YYT. I've done YYC-YHZ and YYC-YYT and it wasn't that bad, doesn't feel any longer than YVR/YYC-YYZ. Not sure if it was mentioned in another thread, but AC is also starting YLW-YUL this summer with he A220. Anywho, cue in the usual &qu...Jump to post
Been using OEM blades on all my VWs, IIRC they use Bosch. When it rains, they wipe. Pitted windshields are more of an issue with visibility here. Had to replace the windshield last year, they didn't have any OEM windshields in stock so they asked if they could install another windshield and gave me ...Jump to post
2015 VW Jetta 2L with a 5 speed stick. Looking to replace it with something that has a better power to weight, perhaps a GTI or Civic SI, comes down to what I can find and what color they will sell it in. I'm assuming the 2.Slow and not the 2.0 TSI? I'd prefer the lower weight in fact, essp given t...Jump to post
really like the look of the Alltrack, and used to own a Skoda Octavia Scout. Capable but not too large.

The absolute best chicken burger ever was at a local joint in the town I grew up in called "RJ's Chicken and Ribs".
