Where's WestJets 76W C-FOGJ

Wed Aug 12, 2015 5:44 pm

With WestJet due to start operating it's 763's YYZ-YYC daily rotations from 17/8 does anyone know the whereabouts of their first scheduled delivery C-FOGJ?

With WS spreading it's wings and acquiring 4 x ex QF B763's to enter the widebodied and longhaul market these deliveries must surely be one of the most anticipated deliveries of 2015.

I'm a little surprised that no images have so far surfaced of the aircraft with its imminent delivery.

In the WestJet colour scheme and with winglets fitted these aircraft are bound to look sensational.

It was flown VCV-CWF back in February, where it must still be.

As of less than a week ago, it was still at CWF. Last I heard, the folks at GeminJets were deciding on what package to put it in

Per @airlineroute on twitter (not yet on their website), EIS now pushed back to 5 Sept, so no longer 17 Aug.

Not sure who took the photo, so I can't give credit where due. But here is one of them in VCV.

I like the logo "redesign" to be the maple leaf. Will give them that Canadian identification they need internationally.

It looks strange with the main gear doors open. Apart from that, it looks great!

That logo will slowly start appearing on the NG fleet as well. I anticipate the next delivery of tail 841 in September we will starting seeing outstanding NG orders from Boeing arrive with the new logo. Its been mentioned that within 5 years the entire fleet, airport signage, and all other company material will include the leaf.
