Hey YVR - Buy a plow!

Recommended Posts

Nice poster for contaminated runway training. I wonder what surface condition was advertised on YVR’s ATIS?

One of the certification tests for the aircraft is SPECIFICALLY so this does not happen.  Interesting

Those tests don’t cover slush ingestion, only water. It was very slushy yesterday. 

slush is just dense water

B767 limitation for standing water or slush is 1/2” or 13mm. If a nose wheel’s water/slush spray flames out an engine, I’d say it was easily that amount or more. 

Again, YVR should have closed the runway.

Maybe send the guy in the red suit with “his” vehicle out to see if it rolls or grinds to a halt after application of take off power.

No, it's not. Ever get hit in the face with a slush ball?

That’s quite a video and the runway (26L?) should have definitely been closed until it was properly cleaned.

Five hours on the runway? Looked like a low speed reject due to compressor stall. No fire after the take off was stopped.

YVR doesn’t really understand winter. Never has, and probably never will.

Wow! Talk about trying to "make news" out of a natural weather event, however rare in a place like Vancouver...even referring to the airport as yvr as if everyone should know its the airport. Media smugness at its finest.  Perhaps they should ask T junior to apologize to the inconvenienced.

If you have a point, it seems to be getting by some of us. Nonetheless, I’ve quickly learned that the majority of wet coast locals refer to their airport as “YVR”.

YVR is a lot more on point than Lester B Pearson Airport.

Really? Agreed, I would say YVR has beautiful airport terminal interiors. Wood. Steel. Glass. Rocky Mountains. No others comes close IMHO. :)

But....what else do they have over YYZ?
