Planespotting on a lovely Sunday afternoon

I’ll go out on a limb and say we’re seeing the end of Winter 2008-2009.  10C and brilliant sunshine.  A great day to grab the camera and go planespotting near Pearson International Airport.

YYZ_AP-BGY

A beautiful PIA (Pakistani International Airlines) Boeing 777-200/LR glides in for a landing. Magnificent in the serenity of the approach.  This is one quiet airplane.

YYZ_G6-JAF

Air Jamaica G6-JAF (Airbus 320-214) bringing folks home from somewhere just a bit warmer than Toronto.

YYZ_D-AHFT

Probably the strangest of the bunch.  Although it wears the name CanJet complete with Maple Leaf in the C, this Boeing 737-800 actually carries a German registration D-AHFT.

It was nice to have the big camera in my hand again and feel the sun on my face.  It’s time to come out of hibernation.
