. Help!
David Baker sends this information -
I have an early vintage tugger "Brown Betty" which was residing up at
YUL ACRA  Camp Four Winds until about a year ago.
It sure would be a good addition to the TCA/Air Canada promotional fleet.
The tugger is powered by a flat head six [believe it is a Chrysler engine]
and was fully serviceable when parked at the side of the Stores annex.
Seeing as they have a tub cart and a Jeep painted in TCA grey livery
colours and logos, it would be very nice to add a vintage tugger to the
display set.
If you know anyone connected with TCC and the ground support vehicles,
could you pass on the message and my email hopefully before the winter
sets in...

AIRTRAN WINS GOVERNMENT CONTRACT:
Who woulda thunk it?  AirTran, formerly ValuJet, has been awarded
$8 million in government contracts.
In its former incarnation as ValuJet, the airline was blasted by the
government for cutting corners and for a string of mistakes that led to
the crash of a DC-9 in the Florida Everglades.  How times change.

. Lois North sends this information -
The Maple Wings group are a group of retired and active Flight
Attendant and have several Chapters across the system having one in
Victoria, Vancouver, Kelona, Calgary, Lethbridge, Winnipeg, Toronto and
several others in Ontario, Montreal, Halifax.
The Chapters meet regularly amongst themselves, the Victoria group have
regular monthly get-togethers, and include a couple who are both 80 year
olds now, and have many memories which they share.
And a short biography from Lois North:
I worked with TCA as a passenger agent at Sidney, NS and as a flight
attendant based at Dorval in the 1950's before marrying Capt. Ernie North.
In those days when a woman joined in holy matrimony, she also  joined the
ranks of the unemployed. TCA/AC has been my extended family for nearly
45 years.  My son Reigh carries on the tradition as a station  attendant
at Vancouver.  Also, my sister was a flight attendant based in Calgary,
Vancouver and Winnipeg in the '60's and early 70's.
I receive both the Rapcan and Between Yourselves Netletters.

. Tom Martin sends this -
While we airline people enjoy reading the efforts of Vesta and Terry
telling us what's going on in our world, those of us lucky enough to live
on the west coast might want to pay a visit to another mode of transport
and see the excellent replica of Capt. Cook's ship Endeavour.
Unfortunately its left Victoria but will be spending some time in
Vancouver.
When I visited TCC when it was here (in Victoria), I thought bending over
to get up the aisle was tough on the back, but that was nothing compared
to creeping below decks on the Endeavour where the head room is
4ft. 7 inches.
If you want to have a look at the ship try its web site

. From RAPCAN email newsletter issued by Duane Frerichs -
*** Spanish pilots ignore smoking ban
MADRID, Spain (AP) - In tobacco-happy Spain, Iberia airlines expected
some whining over its new blanket ban on smoking - but not outright
defiance from the people who fly their planes. The Spanish flagship
carrier went smoke-free Wednesday, banning tobacco consumption on all
domestic and international routes. Iberia's pilots, however, vowed to
keep lighting up in the cockpit. "Passengers can choose their
airline. We cannot," said Carmen Thaus, a spokeswoman for the Spanish
Airline Pilots Association. "The cockpit is our workplace."

. Smilie
from the RAPCAN newsletter produced by Duane Frerichs -
Any More Complaints?
The controller working a busy pattern told the 727 on downwind to make
a 360 (do a complete circle, usually done to provide spacing between
aircraft). The pilot of the 727 complained, "Do you know it costs us
two thousand dollars to make a 360 in this airplane?"
Without missing a beat the controller replied,
"Roger, give me four thousand dollars worth."

*** What the...?!
PSA was following United, taxiing out for departure. PSA called the
tower and said "Tower, this is United 586. We've got a little problem;
go ahead and let PSA go first."
The tower promptly cleared PSA for takeoff before United had a chance to
object to the impersonation.
