Disappointed Vancouver employees to get second chance to see A340-500.
Last week, at the last minute, our 'Sneak-a-peek' Airbus A340-500 event in
Vancouver was cancelled as the aircraft was unexpectedly called into service.
We understand many people made a special effort to see the plane and were
disappointed when it didn't happen.
We're pleased to say the event has been rescheduled and employees, retirees,
families and friends can tour the aircraft on Friday (July 30) from 3 - 7 p.m.
If you'd like a second chance to see what all the excitement's about, the
aircraft will be ready for viewing at the Operations Centre, North Hangar area
(6001 Grant McConachie Way) , Bay 4.
If you're uncertain how to get there, there will be signage in the airport or
you can ask one of the event's volunteers.
Please note: valid Air Canada identification is required and for security
reasons no cameras will be permitted.

. In response to the smilie about the folding guitar in NetLetter 840,
Tom Heald sends this -
Hi Guys. You must have missed the last sentence in the story. Reason for the
folding guitar in the cockpit was for the small storage space for crew baggage.
If you have ever had to use the jump seat you know the pilots do not have time
to play at anything. They are professionals.
The folding guitar was for playing in the hotel on crew rest. The guy obviously
was not too enthusiastic about watching TV. Also, lets face it. Must be good
for meeting people around the pool.
