Hello IFC! This was a day that will likely go down in my spotting history. I never thought in a million years I would catch this jet. I didn’t even know it was inbound either. I believe this is the first time it’s visited Toronto but don’t quote me on that, it’s YHM based. Drake was aboard the aircraft however I arrived at the parking area a bit too late to see him exit the aircraft.
This aircraft, N767CJ, is an ex-CargoJet Boeing 767-200ER. It even still sports the CargoJet logo. He parked up with many of the other private jets, mostly Cessnas, Gulfstreams, and Globals, but also a Comlux A330.

This is my favorite shot of the three and possibly one of my all time favorites.
Here’s the arrrival. Unfortunately I was at the other runway so we had to rush over, but we didn’t make it. This shot was taken from the window of a moving car. All in all, I don’t really like the shot but it completes the trifecta and considering the circumstances I’m happy.
Here’s the departure. This plane was so incredibly light (the only people on board were the captain, F/O, and maybe a few others) and it was departing for Hamilton which is practically a 10 minute flight. After some poking around on Google Earth, I think he rotated and took off with just less than 3000 feet of runway.
Thanks for viewing this! Other shots from the day will be up soon.
