Recommended Posts

Shalom and greetings all my pals,


Presenting via era 1960 Kodak photography style a very nice maiden flight by DC-8-43 for Canadian Pacific airline from CYVR Vancouver International Airport located on Sea Island in Richmond 8 miles from downtown Vancouver to CYYC Calgary International Airport situated 11 miles northeast of downtown Calgary.


Taxiing to de-icing area




Being covered with greenish de-icing stuff




Engines roaring with spew of smoke to start taxi to short of runway 08L




Still taxiing




Holding short of runway 08L awaiting for take off clearance from controllers in the control tower seen in background




Take off clearance is granted as the plane's engines start to go on full thrust power spewing black smoke




Airborne on climb to FL310 with nice background view of downtown Vancouver where you can see BC Place Super Dome




Still climbing




Passing through clouds






More clouds to pass through






Still climbing to FL310 now at FL200




Passing 10,781 ft high Mount Baker which is an active volcano located in the Cascade Volcanic Arc and the North Cascades of Washington and you can see snow capped 9,131 ft Mount Shuksan in background




Still passing the two same mountains while you can spot Mount Rainer in much further distance in background




Time to turn to north toward destination with background view of Skagit Valley Provincial park






Cruising at FL310




Passing town of Penticton, Canada where you can see Skaha Lake in front of third engine and Okanagan Lake on bottom of the screenshot




Passing the same town area where you can see CYYF Penticton Regional Airport located 1.8 nautical miles southwest of Penticton, British Columbia

Lovely effects on a classic. Diesel powered!! :) Nice landing too!



My first ever holiday abroad and in fact my first ever flight on an airliner of any kind was in 1982, as a wide-eyed 16 year old, on a charter DC-8 (Arrow Air?? maybe, I forget). She was tired even then. The overhead lockers didn't exist - it was just open racking like you'd find on a bus or coach! It was supposed to be a non-stop flight from Gatwick, UK to Denver, Colorado. However, due to unexpected headwinds we had to land at Bangor in Maine before continuing on. I loved it because we got double the amount of takeoffs and landings! :)
