  1. Clear case of finger trouble IMHO. Can happen to any of us.
  2. WestJet 737 Max

    Thanks Malcolm! Looks like RAX is WJ Max #1, NAX is WJ Max #2.
  3. WestJet 737 Max

    The WJ 737-MAX 8 is actually C-FRAX, not C-FNAX. https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/c-frax T9
  4. Seattle MOF B52 Repaint

    Not many aircraft types have examples being preserved and restored as artifacts of history while other examples are actively serving at the same time: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2d_Bomb_Wing Amazing!
  5. Has this been previously posted? If so, my apologies. Long video. The takeoff roll starts at about 3:20 (and ends very shortly after that ) Pilot was OK. The Spitfire, not so much... hard to watch! T9
  6. SFO Incident

    I firmly believe that even in the total absence of warnings given by ATC or anyone else, this AC crew would have eventually initiated a last minute (and, yes, rather hair-raising) goaround, rather than settling their bird into a lineup of waiting aircraft.
  7. Short answer, no. Nothing with the size, variety and "mainland feel" of Ala Moana Shopping Centre.
  8. Westjet F/A in the news...

    WestJet 737NG routes to Europe: YYT-LGW YYT-DUB YHZ-GLA
  9. WestJet to launch ULCC???

    Quote from another forum. The writer's tone and style might seem familiar to some of the more seasoned members of this venue ;-) -T9 "It's probably safe to say YHM will be front and center with high density east - west trunk routes in the summer and Florida, SoCal and the Deserts in the winter, from both east and west. I've yet to see an airline within airline concept such as this truly succeed. Too often, their "success" is a function of creative internal cost and revenue allocation, densification, to a certain extent ,juniority, and more recently, $50 or less oil pricing. But then again, I've yet to see one that's been set up properly from the getgo. I'm eager to see WJ's take on this. Will WJ be the first to get it right? How many people are left at WJ that even truly understand what an LCC is, let alone a supposed ULCC? They are easy terms to throw around, but, as countless airlines have discovered, lot harder to actually achieve. Regardless, in spite of all the brave talk, the appetite to invest in any of the other paper ULCC's that have been trying to raise capital for the last 3-4 years just got infinitely harder. I suspect that is the point of the exercise in the first place."
  10. New Leaf Travel

    I remember us quitting Winnipeg for a bit. But dropping 4 destinations all at once?... nothing like that.
  11. New Leaf Travel

    OK. So if I have one piece of carry on and 2 checked bags, and I take care of it all at the check-in counter... I'm paying an additional $120? If I'm in a hurry and go straight to the gate with same bags, I'm paying $240? Ouch.

    Also suspending flights into Regina, Saskatoon, Kamloops and Victoria... due to demand... possibly to resume just before Xmas?... http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/newleaf-airline-regina-saskatoon-1.3766717
  13. I logged about 1500 hours on the MU-2 back in the '80's. Fun plane to fly with lots of power, but very high wing loading for its size and it didn't handle ice well. Wondering if ice accretion might be a factor in this accident.
  14. Westjet 767 Operation

    WJ 767 180 minute ETOPS approved as of yesterday, Dec 30. First AB-Hawaii using a WJ 767 scheduled for Jan 10.
  15. WestJet Third Quarter Profit

    That link didn't work for me - here's another one. Record Q3 profit - nice! http://westjet2.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=1064
