Air Canada Over the Wing In-flight photos/videos

I am inspired and sometimes in awe of what I see when I look out my window while flying.

Given that many of us are now posting photos from other experiences we have while flying AC, I thought it would be great to have a thread to showcase our collective talent in photos taken in-flight.

This thread is specifically for views of wings, engines and any background scenery, and to showcase the fantastic views we often have have while gazing out the window.

It would be great if you could identify the route. You are welcome to post the flight date and/or your seat, if you’d like.

Please remember, this thread is for scenic photos, not cabin interiors, seats, or for topics found elsewhere on AC FT. Thank you.

Given the excitement many of us have for AC’s 788 and 789 Dreamliners, I’ll start with my first trip AC 5/6 to HND in the Fall of 2014. Outbound, I was on the “first born” as I call her, FIN 801. That flight became the start of a photographic interest for me while flying.

Interesting to compare the wing shape of a 763 with the 788's from 24L's post!

I have started a YouTube channel where I am slowly accumulating videos of my take-offs and landings. So far I have been successful only in daylight though.

Well I'm jealous. I've never been on the fun little birds (at least not with AC).

Just to have some fun I'm not telling you where this is but seeking inspired guesses instead.

It's not very far from here



I appear to have been forced to give you a clue. This was on AC 9931 (codeshare so I hope that qualifies)
