Emirates A380 De-iced and Ready to go! @CYYZ

Hey IFC! Was doing some plane spotting at CYYZ today, and the weather wasn’t exactly blue skies. Snow was falling so all aircraft were being de-iced as a precaution. I figured this was a really good opportunity to get some unique shots of the green fluorescent wings! My timing was great, and managed to catch this beast. These pictures aren’t insane quality, as i’m only using a iPhone, but still figured i’d share these unique shots. As always, click on each photo for better quality. Enjoy!

Great Photos! Gotta admit, those wings look like they are factory fresh in the green scheme.

I see that every morning at Jane and Wilson! I’ll see if I can spot it with an actual camera next time!

Yeah, the main reason I went out today was for the de-icing, figured it would be a unique opportunity to get some cool shots. Tbh, I think the green goes well with the emirates livery, not so well with others…

Yeah the green definetely fit the livery of EK. Hence why the green bubble spot thing variant of their 2020 Expo livery is my favorite of the three colors available 😍

CYYZ is such an underrated airport. Maybe we can create an event there one day!

What outstanding photos! Always love being up close and personal with the jumbos! Sadly, I don’t have an airport near me that flies in these beasts, but I love it when I go to LA. Always head to LAX to spot. May head up to Vancouver one of these days! Anyways, amazing shots. Keep up the good work.
