The Canadian Adventure

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Following on from my previous post (here) and after a little pause, I'm back to complete my A340 series starting with an aside.

I've just arrived in Heathrow and noticed Air Canada operating a 737 there. Further investigations reveal they do (did, now, this was flown at the end of last year) a service to St Johns in Newfoundland on a 737. Initially I believe they used a conventional (albeit ETOPS) 737NG, more recently they switched to a MAX and right now, obviously, it's not running.

A glorious winter morning at Heathrow as we load up the iFly 737-800.

It was pretty cloudy the whole way and most of it was spent out to sea, here we are in the intermediate approach with the coast of Newfoundland visible under the clouds.

From here, the online flight trackers seemed to suggest the aircraft carries on to Toronto, in for a penny...

At this point we needed to get back to London to continue the A340 challenge, cue a 787 flight back to EGLL (here)...
