I've been trying to find some pics I took (with a super old digital camera) while in pattern on AC868 (one of the rare times I took the dayliner) waiting to land at LHR on Guy Fawkes Night about 15 years ago... the entire landscape below must've had hundreds, if not thousands, of backyards lighting up with intense sparkles. Now that would certainly be a worthy throwback picture! I'll post it here once I find it... if I can.

Throwback to the first FT Do that I ever attended (May 2015). Thanks to @Dorian for hosting a great event!

Funny that you were the first one to reply, seeing as you were the first FTer I met in person when we had that on-arrival mini-Do at the YVR Dom MLL a couple hours before the actual Do

​​​​​​(And I think we were joined shortly thereafter by @tracon, who has never followed through on that tour he had talked about arranging )

Who remembers this guy? Moe

Does anyone have access to the videos that were made about him? Was it AC marketing?
We bid on him and the funds went to charity (I believe).
Moe has been living a quiet life in Alberta for a few years now. He occasionally comes out to entertain the grandkids.
He's a bit scraggly but has aged well.

I really miss that old Jazz livery. The new Express livery is nice, but nothing compares to that absolute classic.

Express is so generic and boring, Jazz was just so unique and I loved it.

Rouge vs. a CRJ-200? That's a tough choice.
