100 Days of Inaction2018 Federal Budget Only Mentions Pension Protection Strategy

Finance Minister Bill Morneau stated in the 2018 budget that the government will be consulting with workers, pensioners and businesses on how best to ensure secure retirement for Canadians. It’s a step in the right direction but we must keep the pressure on politicians. CARP will continue to engage its members and concerned citizens to hold the government accountable for protecting pensioners.

CARP has been calling on the government to legislate super-priority status for unfunded pension liabilities. If a company goes bankrupt, pensioners should be paid first! But the government has failed to act. We must pressure our politicians to do what’s right. If you believe retirees deserve better treatment, e-mail your MP to demand super-priority for pensioners.

tmb horizons emblemExtracted from the "Horizons" magazine issue May 1983

Fast action by Regina staff kept everything under control following the incident on May 12, 1983 in which Flight 234 from Vancouver, CF-TLJ,  Fin #709 c/n 47019 a DC-9, slid off a Regina runway upon landing in a freak spring snow storm..

All 57 passengers and five crew members were evacuated. Two passengers received minor injuries. Crew members Lucille Parkinson, Purser; Barbara Brown and Jocelyne Landry-Altmann, Flight Attendants; as well as Captain Jack Proulx and First Officer Ian Watson were all checked for injuries and then transported to a local hotel.

Vancouver fetes retirees from then and now.

tmb yvr retirees 1983Highlights of the 7th century included the year 622, the traditional date for the start of the Muslim era, and the year 687, when the first Doge of Venice was elected. The year 653 might also have been a significant date if an imaginary Air Canada employee had joined a fledgling TCA then.

If that hypothetical employee elected to retire today, he or she would match the shared service represented by 40 Vancouver-based employees who retired at the end of April 1983.

Collectively they represented 1,331 years of service. To commemorate such an achievement, a farewell gathering was held at the Richmond Inn, near Vancouver Airport. Plaques were presented and fond farewells given by a sell-out group of friends and well-wishers.

Star Booking Class Alignment

As of October 29, 2009, Air Canada’s booking class structure has been re-aligned with that of Star Alliance, marking the successful conclusion of a major project that has been in the works for nine months. By implementing the Star Booking Class Alignment (SBCA), we are now meeting a Star partnership requirement while giving Revenue Management the tools to do their jobs more efficiently.

A celebration of flight, by Brian Losito

tmb cf tccNo other nation in the world owes more to flight than Canada. Aviation opened up the country and remains a life-line to many remote areas.

The pioneers of aviation in Canada began their journey into powered flight on February 23, 1909, in Baddeck, N.S. Using a frozen lake as a runway, John Alexander and Douglas McCurdy piloted the Silver Dart and travelled a distance of 800 metres at 65 km/h. The flight was hailed as Canada’s first successful controlled, powered flight.

Air Canada’s Lockheed Electra CF-TCC got to participate in the 100th Anniversary of Flight Celebration, which kicked off this summer. 

Air Canada partnered with Shell Aviation by flying the L10A from Winnipeg to Halifax with many stops along the way. On board each flight leg was a commemorative baton, which held memorabilia and logs of each flight leg. The baton was in the form of an RCAF navigator’s flight satchel. The baton was transferred to each of the many participating aircraft along the way.

Captains Harvey Reid and Gerry Norberg, both active Air Canada pilots, flew from Winnipeg to Montreal. Retired Captains Ken Patry and Alan MacLeod flew the Lockheed from Montreal through to Halifax. After the celebration this summer, our L10A participated in air shows and some PR events, then headed back to Winnipeg on October 16 where it will spend the winter in the Western Canadian Aviation Museum.

Canadians have a lot to be proud of when it comes to aviation and aerospace. By looking at our accomplishments over the past 100 years that began with the Silver Dart and continued with other significant developments in aviation technology and space research, imagine what great achievements the next 100 years will bring. Certainly this was a fitting event for our seventy-two year old Lockheed to have participated

I am a big Beatles fan and I expect many of our NetLetter readers are as well. Although we rarely post anything that isn't aviation related, I thought I'd make an exception this week. If you were/are a Beatles fan, I'm fairly sure you'll enjoy the video below.

James Corden heads to Liverpool for a special day with Paul McCartney spent exploring the city of Paul's youth, visiting his childhood home where he wrote music with John Lennon, performing songs in a local pub and of course driving around singing a few of Paul's biggest hits.

So what does this have to do with aviation... Paul McCartney used to be in a band called "Wings".

From the "Canadian Pacific COMPRESS" magazine issue 1981.

Spreading wings.

Soon after the war a new Empress of world travel was to make its debut. Grant McConachie, the unquenchable airline enthusiast and Wiliiam Neal, who had succeeded to the presidency of the company, had won a major victory. They persuaded the government to allow Canadian Pacific not only to continue to fly but to fly to the Orient and Australia as well.

The first overseas flight of the Empress of the air was in 1949. New destinations were quickly added until, six years later, Canadian Pacific flew 22,000 miles of routes to five continents. But the hoped –for right to fly to destinations across Canada was still denied.


Found in the "Connections" magazine issue dated March 1989.

wayne albertson articlesC-GWKF - Almost 40 Years of Service

 In June of 2017 my article in NL #1368 was about my pleasure in driving by Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) on my way to play Euchre with a group of friends on Monday evenings.

This week I noticed a Boeing 727 (Registration C-GWKF) sitting outside a hangar used by the University of the Fraser Valley for their Aircraft Structures Technician program.

There is just something about an aircraft parked in a remote setting that piques my curiosity. How many stories are contained within its fuselage?

I stopped and took a few pictures (see this issue's header) and immediately did a Google search of the registration when I returned home that evening.

As per www.planelogger.com, B-727-243 Serial No. 21270 Line No. 1231 first flew on November 4, 1976 and was delivered to Alitalia (I-DIRJ) on December 20, 1976 where is served until being acquired by People Express (N577PE) in January 1987 and later Continental Airlines (N17407).  tmb C GWKF Purolator

As has been well documented, the B-727 was gradually replaced by more fuel-efficient aircraft for passenger service but continued as cargo aircraft for the growing air cargo industry in the later part of the nineteen-nineties.

Kelowna Aircraft acquired the aircraft in January 2002 where it flew for Purolator Courier. As far as I can tell it flew until mid 2015 and accumulated almost 40 years of service in the air.

From the assembly team at Boeing to the various flight crews, passengers, cargo loading personnel and finally, students; this aircraft certainly has touched many lives.

In operation since 1928, it was Montreal's first and only airport until the construction of Montréal/Dorval International Airport (now Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport).

As of 2017, it is ranked as Canada's 15th busiest airport by aircraft movements. This airport mainly serves travellers to Quebec destinations.

The airship stayed at Montreal for 12 days with over 100,000 people visiting the airship each day while it was moored there, and a song was composed by La Bolduc to commemorate, or rather to make fun of, the people's fascination with R100.

In those days Hawkair flew mining equipment to isolated Goldmine sites in Northern BC.
