Norman Hogwood is seeking information -

I wonder now if anyone of your friends or readers know of the current whereabouts of an AC Captain Peter Blake.

In 2000 I was the Air NZ rep on a Star Alliance safety audit of United Airlines. We had a fine bunch of guys from ANA, Austrian Airlines, VASP (Brazil – now defunct), Lufthansa and AC (Peter and a mechanic). Peter was our audit team leader. The group was split into three with one covering flight ops in Denver, another engineering in SFO while Peter and a few others including me, went to Chicago for the week. At that time, Peter was a CRJ skipper so he has probably risen through the ranks to B777/787 by now. We had a great time together and it would be nice to know how he’s doing.

Thanks in advance.

Norman Hogwood, after reading in the media about the recent flights involved with severe turbulence sends this -

Hi Folks. I was reading about an incident involving severe turbulence this morning and someone had asked what happens in the cockpit at such times. Another person suggested he Google "BCal flight over the Andes” which is a report written by the Captain of a VC10 British Caledonian flight about a trip in 1971.
Well worth a read, especially just before taking that holiday trip. www.british-caledonian.com

Cheers. Norm

Would anybody have a copy of the Air Canada North American schedule for January and February of 1967? and if so is there a contact I could use?

tmb cake at yvrWhenever we launch a new route at YVR we try our best to pull out all the stops with a jaw-dropping cake at the gate event and our Air Canada rouge inaugural to Osaka was no different. This incredible cake was so beautiful passengers were afraid to eat it. An amazing piece of edible art that helped celebrate an awesome new service out of YVR. (source YVR Newsletter)
