On sundays (or if the King Air is down, or the crew is unavailable) the company picks up the scheds with a tube. The Bear was running 8 tubes and a King Air (there might s...

Hey Saluko, "outfit by the name of Amigo Airlines, they fly a Beech 18 on floats that'll take you to Nanaimo from Vancouver's South Terminal for $49 and it's a great experience."

Canada does have a lot of oil reserves, but were giving it away like a fat chick with low self esteem. Were tearing up northern alberta and pumping it as fast as we can out of the east coast. even BC wants to lift the ban on drilling to get in on the action (I can only imagine the damage one good sp...

Man, i can't believe the paint scheme, soon it'll just be all white with a little maple leaf decal on the tail from crappy tire!
The uniforms look like they just walked out of a TipTop flyer. At least the green was distinctive.

I watched a special on the 380 a year ago or so, they were looking at Charles De Gaul airport and the changes required for the new airbus. Aparently the 777 had necessitated many of the changes already, it was longer I believe and had a highr wheel loading then the 380 (less wheels I believe).
