Default YYZ Runway Run June 19, 2010

Today was Toronto Pearson Intl. Airport's 3rd annual Runway Run event! The event basically lets people of the public run or walk on the runway in a 5K run or 2K walk. The proceeds from the the participants' registration costs along with fundraisers went towards charity. WestjetterO from the forums here was one of the walkers too...

I got a chance to volunteer for the event today and it was A LOT of fun! Runway 24L/06R was closed for the event. There was a great turnout with almost 3,000 runners and walkers! There was a lot of air traffic around us with aircraft taking off, landing and taxiing on and around the parallel Runway 24R.

There were also two aircraft on static display: Air Canada A319 and FedEx 727. There were also kiosks setup by the different sponsors for the event such as Air Canada, the Canadian Cancer Society and even Turkish Airlines! I was able to get some posters and Turkish was even giving away 1:500 Herpa A340's!

It made for some great photos..

That's a really good idea, glad to see that things like this can still take place in this day and age. May go over to Toronto for this next year.

More pics!

People lining up to go inside to see the flight deck and walk through the aircraft.


We were allowed to get up pretty close with the aircraft and take pictures.


Can't land here!











Walking up the air stairs... getting closer!

A bit more.. I hope these don't qualify as the typical, abundant AC shots found in other YYZ threads...






No Grab! Bad English?








Don't worry it didn't roll away like the AA 777... We use chocks here at YYZ...

It better be on chocks! Don;t wanna follow the Etihad 346 and AA 777!

And they are not the usual AC shots! I like the Engine and APU closeups!

@Orion
Your traffic closeup shots are very good! It was definitely a great experience!

More AC 319:

Me with nosegear and Engine. You never actaully realize how BIG these aircraft (baby buses, 737s etc..) are until you see them up close! I can't imagine going up to a 777 or A330/340!


Some Cool A319 pics:

Talking Re: YYZ Runway Run June 19, 2010

Went spotting later....
I had seen a Russian IL-96 parked at the infield during the run (RA-96018). Went to 23 later and saw this odd looking Aircraft, I sprinted across the road and down the sidewalk to get into position while still thinking: 'What could it be, A 747? a 707?' I only realized when it was nearly on top of me, it was a Rossiya Airlines IL96-300 (RA-96019). An Early visitor for G8/G20 from Russia. Not too Shabby, eh Tupi?


C-GTSX

TransAero 767 came immeadiately after Rossiya IL-96!

Looks like a great day, though crappy morning weather. Though it would have made the walk/run easier compared to the hot weather later in the afternoon.

You can actually make out those decals on the A319. Something like how it would appear on a 1:200 model itself.

Thanks for sharing these pics Parm and Westjetter! Ugh I'm so jealous

Great pictures of you and the airport.
I hope one day there will be something like this here, in Ben Gurion (Tel Aviv) airport in Israel..XD
You've taken some nice shots of the small parts of the A320, and the FexEd aircrafts!
The Turkish airlines model is a nice addition, and so are the pictures of the FedEx interior!
It's funny to see this post today, as I recieved my very first Air Canada- an A330 model in 1:500 scale!

Keep on bringing great shots and zooms!
