Re: WestJet and Sunwing ground collision - YYZ

More often than not I see the wing walkers waiting in the bridge to see the aircraft start moving before they come out. This usually results in them trailing the tug by several, if not 10's of, meters behind the tug holding up their wand.

Re: Voyageur

You're OFF for your 8 weeks. They may ask if you're interested in a charter if it comes up, you can say no. I imagine the bond still exists.

Re: JetBlue blows an engine...PAX all think they're gonna di

Some of these posters are hilarious. A non-event. I'm pretty sure a smoked filled/human filled cabin following an engine failure qualifies as an "event." And to say that people are crazy for wanting to get out, and that you'd be all cool as a cucumber, telling other people to relax just proves that ...

Re: When Flying Was Fun

Great pics posted above! I was lucky enough to visit the flight deck as a kid on an AC B727, then before 9/11 rode jumpseat the same day I did my commercial ride on an AC B737 all the way to landing to YYZ. It is indeed sad kids can't visit up front. Joey, do you like movies about gladiators? :shock:

Re: What is your favorite lens?

I cart around the Sigma 10-24, makes for great cockpit shots and interesting A/C shots. For range shots I also carry the Nikkor 55-200. Would like to get the f 1.4 35 or 55...thoughts?
