One of the few mainline 763s on it way there now - saw a few others as well earlier this week
Any idea as to how many aircraft can be stored there? From Google Earth it doesn't appear that extensive

Looks like Jazz is sending a flock of DH4s out East, presumably for storage/maintenance.

In the air right now (all with 7XXX flight numbers):

YVR-YWG
YYC-YAM
YYC-YQT
YWG-YQB

There at least 2 77Ws and an A330 at YMX, as well as a couple of A319/20.

Looks like they've secured a slot for some heavier maintenance in SIN for at least one of their 77Ws: (C-FRAM, Fin 739) currently underway as AC 2313 as I type this - passing south of the Kamchatka peninsula.

Super cool to see them being stored at Mirabel! I wish some of these planes would come to YYT for storage, but I guess we don't have enough apron space for it...too bad!

Theres another 777 headed for SIN now from YVR. This time a 77L (C-FIVK, Fin 704) operating as AC2311.

A few 787-8 and -9s parked at SAT. C-GHPU, C-GHPQ, C-FGDT, and C-FGDZ. Might be rotating into maintenance while there.

Pretty long flights on DH4s. On the same day, I noticed a CR9 flying YVR-YHZ which was pretty neat to see.

I guess Jazz is re-positioning a large number of their aircraft to the YHZ base.

Maybe the thread title could be changed to include both parked AC aircraft and those heading to and from SIN, or cargo flights. Last night, an A330 and a B789 were both YYZ-ZRH and I see an A330 returning now, AC 2281.

Meanwhile, right now on the other side of the Pacific........





Also AC 7155 is headed to NRT

At least some good practice runs.

While I admire your optimism, one flight does not a route make.
