An old friend...


Here is an airplane formerly know as C-FPCX an Embraer Bandeirante (E-110) at CYQB.
It is now in Aeropro colours and does sched work for them out of Jean Lesage International. I used to fly this bird back on the left coast. Seeing an aircraft you used to fly somewhere totally unexpected is like running into an old friend. It brings back a different time and place to mind. (I know its just an airplane :) (tear)



A side angle of the "old" bird. This particular airplane was the lowest time Bandit I ever had the chance to fly. It is somewhere around 14,000 or so where the oldest had upwards of 29,000 hours (not a good thing really as the first few pages in the general section of the POH state the lifetime of the airfram is 30,000 :)


On the way into Montreal after returning from the New York Metro area and seeing so many airplanes within a 1000 feet of us we had one more to go. We were being vectored out of this West Jet 737-700's path and then followed him in. It is hard for me to get these shots on full zoom as he was haulin ass here around 350 kts or so and we were doing 250 so its a little small. I guess if I can get it to enlarged in the picture ATC probably isn't doing their job so well :)


Just a random shot, of some neat looking clouds. It was my last day before my days off and it was an early morning followed on the heels of a late night. I was leaning my head against the window and the sun visor was right there. The look of the clouds through the visor looked so cool and decided to try and see how it would turn out on the camera. Not bad I reckon.

Lots of nice photos my friend. Those New York ones turned out far better then you had led me to belive they would. Good work ;)
