[WESTJET 787] Golden Hour @ CYYC | August 27th, 2019

The more I spot at other airports the more I realize Toronto is actual garbage for spotting. Anyways…

With the exception of low variety, Calgary actually isn’t bad to spot at. Here are some shots I got this summer.

Shot on D7500 + Tamron 100-400

My main objective this time around was to grab a WestJet 787 in golden light since that’s only possible in Toronto with some serious delays.

Success ✔️

Aside from that, there was some other cool stuff like this Condor 767

Nice to finally see a cargo airline that’s not Aerologic (Toronto get more cargo variety please)

I bet half of you didn’t know WestJet had Saabs

I was hoping for golden hour on this one but the sun went down 5 minutes before 😡

Lovely photos Andrew!
I always forget WestJet has Saab 340Bs in their fleet (operated under contract of course).

You shouldn’t mind YYZ with the amount of great traffic you get though, would love to have half of the number of movements at my home airport!

Don’t you guys get a lot of us who come to visit Banff?

Thanks guys!

WestJet fanboys unite. I really liked them when I flew them back in 2018

I’m sure CLT is much better. There’s like 10 heavies all day.

YYZ isn’t my home airport either lol I’d love to have that kind of traffic where I live. I just spot there bc it’s my closest intl airport.

Those are really good. They quality is just amazing and I really like the reflections on the aircraft
