Yesterday a Norwegian B787-9 diverted here due to a medical emergency. I was lucky enough to catch the departure! Here’s some of my shots.

Both beacon shots. What do you think?

All photos are taken using a Nikon D5100 with a 55-300mm lens unless otherwise noted.

I myself have never been to Canada, but these pictures just reflect exactly what I thought the atmosphere and looks around a Canadian Airport would be like. - I don’t know why…

Some nice shots, would of loved to be there!

@Luke Thanks man! Come to Canada it’s great

@HEYEY Thank you! Yeah, Transat still operates A310’s but we only see them during the winter time

Thank you @iheartplanes1212!

@DreamlinerXWB if you live in Calgary we should meet up sometime. DM me :)

@PlaneCrazy Thanks! I wasn’t expecting it until this morning when FR24 told me there was an A124 coming in. Also, not to brag, but this is my 6th An124 😉

Great pics ! Love the AirTransat a330, that livery suits the aircraft very well. I’ve seen AirTransat down here in FLL but their 737.
