I once spent 5 hours atop the parkade on a humid Aug day in YYZ. Pearson is not the same without it. No offense to any GTA members.

I always liked that livery on the Il-62 in the background too!

I've seen G-BSST in the flesh at the Fleet Air Arm museum in Yeovilton. I was fascinated to see she has an escape hatch underneath the cockpit.

Beautiful! Comet 2 seems stubby compared to the Comet 4. Ansett livery is fantastic, first saw it Gavin's Perth diorama.

8 years, 200 pages, and 3000 posts later, the thread is alive and well!
