Unknown 732 @ YYC

Thu Jul 18, 2002 10:01 pm

Hey all, yesterday afternoon there was a strange 732 here at YYC. It was moslty white, with a blue emblem on the tail (not a very big one) and it looked like some multi coloured text on the fuselage. I was too far away to see what it read. Again the plane was almost all white. Anybody have any clue what it was?


Also did anybody see that United used one of their white with dark tail UA "Shuttle" 737's the other day?

I'm probably guessing that it's Air North. According to justplanes.com, Air North "leased 2 Boeing 737-200s from Jetran International.
The aircraft were previously operated by Royal/C3000 as (C-GNAU & C-GRYY)".

And no, I didn't see that United Shuttle  Big grin

Most likely Air North, that be my 2 cents.

I am guessing Air North too. They have a compass rose on the tail which is blue, and the aircraft are mostly white. The started service here a few months ago.

is the official colours, but they have other aircraft that are less colourful.

Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.

It wasn't Air North, it was some charter from Kelowna flight craft as there was a 727 of the same livery here today. This time I got a good look at it.

Also it seems we have BAE-146 service back again.

Yeah the Cargolux was nice, they had it parked at the terminal as the cargo ramp was full.

Looks good from 20 feet away on the ramp.  Big grin  Big grin

Haha! Poor YYC, not enough room to handle a 747!!!
Bah that tiny UPS apron is good for handling small amount of Cargo from 737's and Convairs.

I'd say ALL the cargo area should be focused at one place! UPS, Cargolux, FedEx, misc.. Probably the area by Purolators new base would be cool for a new location, good snap opportunities and easier access.

Oh ya, Tuesday morning at 10:10am here comes a MExicana Airbus A320, the week after will be a 757.

Cool, i'll try to get out and see the Mexicana next Tuesday. It will be interesting come fall, Canada West Airlines, as well as America West will be serving YYC. Why was Cargolux in during the day? I've seen UPS A300's lately.
