YYZ Spottings


Recommended Posts

I couldn't find a YYZ Spottings thread for Toronto after searching the General Aviation Discussion, so I created one and hopefully people can contribute their pictures of airplanes to this thread. Planes can be small or big, private and or commercial owned.

Here are a few shots from yesterday at Airport Road from the runway 23 landings and approaches.

That Wendys/Petro is great if there are landing operations coming from the east to runway 23 and it's one of the more popular options. You could also try the intersection of Airport Road/Silver Dart.

Disappointed in this as I was hoping for more fanfare and celebration, but this was a surprise as the first Airbus A350 for Toronto Pearson came in late at night after it diverted too CYYZ while enroute to KJFK.

Not my video, but hope to see it in daylight.

There's a Petro-Canada/Wendy's on Airport Road at the end of Runway 23 that is very popular for plane spotting. Anytime I go by there's usually people in the area taking photos.

Note that this all depends on how the runways are being used, but it's one of the most popular spotting locations when plane's land westerly on 23.

I've found this to be a good spot: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.6946351,-79.6311701,3a,75y,271.76h,76.09t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1siKRINmDb1f_hj-h8H3vfSQ!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

Heads-up that June 7th, 2019 is the currently scheduled last day of service by Delta of McDonnell Douglas aircraft to YYZ. Service will be switching to Airbus A320 on June 8th.

Do you mean June 7th 2020?

I’ve been noticing a lot lately from several US cargo operators Atlas Air and National to name a few have been flying from YYZ-TLS(Toulouse, France) lately with a 747-400F. I started to notice it in the past month some departures have been in the middle of the morning about 9:30AM and the others at about 10:30PM. Does anyone know why? Is this a new popular cargo route? And what could it possibly be shipping. I can probably rule out parts for Airbus because YMX would make more sense because it’s an A220 assembly line

I saw some 747s at Pearson yesterday. About 3. One seemed to be an ex Lufthansa and the others were too far to tell. 

 

Terminal #1

Was it in a freight or commercial configuration?

If it was commercial, Lufthansa and KLM use 747-400s. Strange you saw 3.

I’ve seen some rumours but haven’t been able to confirm on some other Aviation forums that Lufthansa may be upgrading their flight to YYZ from FRA from a 747-400 currently to a A380 or 747-8i

The Lufthansa A380s have been grounded if I am correct

This isn’t a Vegas Golden Knights charter

It’s now on the return flight to Las Vegas. Not Pearson but in terms with Calgary, the also got an A319 flight with Allegiant from Vegas and back.

Seeing that G4 doesn't fly to anywhere in Canada, obviously it is a charter flight. There's a big construction convention in Vegas this week, so I would guess that would be why.

LAS gets lots of cool charters from all over the world during big conventions, last week KLM had some flights going in, last time I was there, EL AL had some flights.  Delta does charter flights globally out of LAS, etc.

We are about to lose KLM's 747-400's and 747-400M Combi's to YYZ because of an early retirement due to COVID-19. I know that there is another topic addressing this but I still thought it was relevant to say as the 747's serve Toronto daily.

It’s a repatriation flight, two Wizz Air aircraft flew over from Budapest via Reykjavik to retrieving passengers in Canada and the US. Flight one is routing YYZ, MIA, ORD. Flight two is routing JFK, LAX, JFK.
