Awesome pictures! I recently did a flight out of YPAD as well!


Great photos, even though they’re a little dark! Love the moonshot!

I actually just decided to do a random long haul and hadn’t used the A380 in a while so I did YPAD-CYVR.


Ok I will take one down. Thanks for letting me know @Butter_Boi

Surprisingly it wasn’t bad at all. Especially for a 717.
