Phoenix rising?


Zoom 767-328/ER C-GZMM

Reports are circulating that Zoom airlines might be revived.  Hopefully this news comes true and the distinctive Boeing 767 and 757 aircraft return to the skies.

As readers know, my best friend was a Captain with Zoom and he and his family were devastated when the airline went under last year.  Bad management sunk what had been a successful venture – skyrocketing fuel prices and mistimed expansion created a storm that they could not fly through.

I took this picture in 2006 of C-GZMM “City of Halifax” a 767-328/ER as she sat on the tarmac at the FedEx facility at Pearson Airport near Toronto.  No idea where she’s being stored but hopefully she’ll be back in the air soon.
