Air Canada 787 Arrival to YYZ!
 
Hi everyone!

I am surprised no one made a thread about the arrival of the Air Canada 787.

Is anyone going to spot the new plane landing tmr (Sunday, May 18th)?

If so, which runway will the plane use?

This is an once in a lifetime opportunity!

Rather odd, isn't it? I guess the 787 isn't that exciting anymore.

I'd pop out but I have commitments.

I hope not! I'm expecting to see many more 787s on a routine basis here. ;)

HAHA, the 787 will be spotted on a more routine basis, but the thrill of seeing the first 787 is spectacular!

BTW, anyone going to the 787 Reveal events?

I was going to go but it will be a pain in the *** to be there. There will be so many people, probably lot's of heat haze and very repetitive photos. Hopefully I'll catch it at YOW on Monday doing touch n' go's :P

ETA is 15:00 tomorrow. I didn't know it will be open as a public viewing. I know that Tuesday is media only day.
She'll be used on the YYZ-TLV route.

Ok, I thought it was because Yesman mentioned something about a reveal event.

We can eliminate runway 5/23 as it closed for till the 19th for maintenance work so this narrows it down a bit.

The heathrow route has been cancelled on the B787 according to sources at heathrow and it will only operate the Zurich and tel aviv I think

Air Canada had posted on their news section the 787 was no longer scheduled to Heathrow. Might still be there.

Here's Air Canada's first video of 787 landing at YYZ

Tokyo and TLV will be the first routes. Next week however they will operate YYZ-YHZ for 2 days.

Here's my first shot of the New Boeing 787 for Air Canada!

I was working down in Ajax today and just had to fly over to YYZ to see if I could get a glimpse of her!

I was there 5 minutes and she went by!:D:D:D

Cheers

Gary

I was at YYZ today and she landed on 15L.

Absolute crazy weather: cloudy, windy, cold, rain, hail :eek: , lightning & thunder.

787...like A380's...a multiple daily occurrence at LAX for a long time now. As usual, Canada is well behind the USA. But based on you drug addict Mayor Ford, Toronto dose lead the world in crackhead politicians. Interesting you folks in Toronto support drug abuse. :D

Rob Ford Nation all the way and down the road the franco separatists. It only gets better. However we still don't have dumps like Detroit. Like you said, we are behind!

As much as I agree with you about that loser mayor of theirs and the message the Torontonian parents are sending their children about drugs and DUI, I have to say Canada is not really behind the U.S. at all.
Our healthcare is better. Our schools are better....and safer. Our crime rate per capita is much lower. And let's not forget, we have better beer in Canada!!!
BTW, Toronto has had 787's and A380's for quite a while. Air Canada just got their first one because Boeing, the American company was slow at delivering.LOL

Why is it going to NRT? Route proving? It's not scheduled to carry passengers there until later this year and it's way to early for Air Canada to have trained their crew and familiarize themselves with the plane.

This what I overheard from the ac maintenance crew when I checked out the plane at the hanger but the plane has been flying back and forth from yyz to yul
