iPhone : Fascinating behind-the-scenes look at ⁦WestJet⁩ operations in Calgary. Working on a story for The National. (In the meantime, good news: WS 127 to YVR is on time.)

iPhone : Andrew Poure Gotta spread things out. I’ll bet SYR, ROC, MDT, PIT, BUF, CLE and DTW are all in play. Up until last week 1/19 in ALB was closing at 0200z which wasn’t helping. On a day like this I’d prob carry SYR and PIT and 1:15 hold fuel going to JFK if I had room for it.

iPhone : Two Sunwing employees are among 11 people arrested in connection with a drug bust carried out by the RCMP. The employees are accused of attempting to import and traffic cocaine through Pearson International Airport.

iPhone : #OTD in 1983, Air Canada Flight 143 (C-GAUN) Boeing 767-233 successfully landed at Gimli Industrial Park Airport after running out of fuel due to a miscalculation. This incident earned the aircraft the nickname Gimli Glider.

iPhone : BREAKING: We have the breakdown of the deal. It’ll see the city and the Flames each pay $275 million for an arena to replace the Saddledome. #yyccc

iPhone : Scott Bateman Hehe. I was able to see the registration on the 737 beside you in your video. Then I figured out what gate you were on.

iPhone : Lew W YYC Believe it or not that’s on purpose. They want people to shop and eat and not stay around the gate. It’s been a major complaint since that new terminal opened.

iPhone : 30 Years ago today United Airlines flight 232, a DC-10-10 crashed during an emergency landing at Sioux Gateway Airport, Iowa, USA.
An uncontained no.2 engine failure severed hydraulics that operated the DC-10s flight controls.

iPhone : Son’s friend is driving from Alberta to Ottawa. Son says they are in “Salt Street Marie” tonight. 😆 #soo
