  1. In the case under discussion, the Slovenian Captain was about to fly a Canadian registered aircraft, full of Canadians out of a Canadian airport based on his Slovenian (or where ever license) . He was operating on the FLVC discussed in the article.
  2. Even a reactionary place like Lee County FL (Fort Myers) has a large energy from waste plant. They even collect aluminum cans out of the ash and make a few million dollars recycling them. They get enough electricity to power the plant, offices and enough left over for a small town. The next county north has a land fill site but because it is Florida, you can't really go down too far, so its just a large, ugly, smelly pile. Just like Ontario used to do until they ran out of sites that would take it. How many tons of hydro carbons do those trucks hauling Toronto and Mississauga garbage emit?
  3. That aircraft is ex Air Canada C-FTNJ !
  4. Looking at pictures of the 737 that went into the EMAS at LGA made me wonder if "they" ever put that system at the end of 24 in YYZ?
  5. For those with interests in hurricane territory, a good site is https://www.wunderground.com/hurricane/
  6. LHR has a great light system that seems to work. But it would cost money that should really go to waterfalls and art collections. What am I thinking, YYZ get into the 1990's safety systems.
  7. ",,,a modest 200 meter increase on either end " What is that going to cost and who pays for it? I'm sure neither Porter nor Bombardier will be footing the bill, but they appear to be the only ones who benefit.
  8. Here is one from CP Rail. Never knew they did this. http://www.cpr.ca/holiday-train/united-states
  9. Late '70's I did a DC-8 freighter that left YYZ at 2255 (for legalities) and went YMX, YQM, YHZ, YYT. Never figured out why YQM always brought us over the city in the middle of the night. I noticed recently that one of the cargo carriers does pretty much the same route these days.
  10. A time Lapse video of the assembly of an Air Canada 787-8 https://youtu.be/zY81OVIIpUM
  11. Isn't severance in the contract? Terminating them all won't get the planes fueled.
  12. Here's a link to a video of the interior etc http://aviationweek.com/cseriestour?NL=AW-05&Issue=AW-05_20150615_AW-05_569&sfvc4enews=42&cl=article_4&utm_rid=CPEN1000000990131&utm_campaign=2877&utm_medium=email&elq2=373399214aa542c29f1a5a5686bb3d78
  13. This is a link to an article about the coming pilot shortage and how it is really the pilots and their union's responsibility to provide cheap labour for the regional level. No mention of cutting executive pay, bonuses, perks or pensions, of course. No mention of how the capitalist system of supply and demand should decide wages. So, it is once again, all labour's fault. http://app.info.aviationweek.com/e/er?s=1076&lid=11835&elq=a81e528703744cf5b360d0ff8e82f16a
  14. Rolls is taking a different view of the end of the 380 http://aviationweek.com/commercial-aviation/rolls-royce-and-airbus-near-accord-over-a380neo
  15. Thought this may be of interest to those who flew the 727 or just like following old aircraft. http://aviationweek.com/blog/interactive-map-retired-fedex-boeing-727s-dot-globe
