Remember When

tmb 223 cartoon 1473A memory by Terry Baker

This issue's 'Smileys' cartoon (left) reminds me of the time I was seconded to a small airline in the Caribbean in the early 1970's.

Their reservations were handled the same way as depicted in the cartoon - before being online. Naturally, when an agent selected a card from the appropriate slot for completion and, by the time it came to replace the completed card, the turntable had been moved by another agent, and the card invariably went into the incorrect slot.

When I worked for KLM in the late '40's in London, the reservations had a huge wooden structure with pigeon holes representing flights and filled with cards equal to the aircraft's seats. The structure was situated between two rows of agents who could turn around and select the card from the appropriate slot and return it after completion. At day's end, the passenger lists for each of the following day’s flights were sent to LHR by telex, and the empty slots were reassigned and filled with more cards.

In 2002, Ed Hill sent us this memory regarding the North Star aircraft which we first published in NetLetter #666 -

It is great to read all about this marvellous airplane from my fellow employees and all of the memories that go along with it, however, let me share with you folks something that maybe 5 or 6 people are aware of.

When I was working as a 16 year old in Airways Engineering, my desk was just a few feet away from the office of one of the most loveable persons I have had the privilege of knowing. That person is no other than Captain Ron Baker who was TCA's engineering test pilot.

Every time Captain Baker went on a test flight he always took me with him. Now this is what most people don't realize; TCA was probably the first airline in North America to be testing automatic throttle combined with auto instrument landing system.

On this particular flight the weather was no better than a 100 foot ceiling and he demonstrated how this system would work to everyone’s advantage. So the bottom line I'm trying to make is that the old North Star was involved in a lot more than just making fond memories for some people.

Best regards,

Ed Hill, retired. 


Women in Aviation

Alexandrina Denysenko, a senior flight attendant with seven years of experience, says she sometimes does not get a spare minute to sit down during a flight and dreams of resting her swollen legs after spending hours wearing heels.

tmb 550 skyup

SkyUp Airlines, the privately-owned Ukrainian carrier that employs Denysenko, decided to put an end to heels and pencil skirts after collecting feedback from flight attendants about their uniform.

The new SkyUp uniform for women now includes white Nike sneakers and a loose orange suit with trousers and a silk scarf, both made by Ukrainian brands. White T-shirts will replace blouses.

"Shoes (with) heels look beautiful, I do not argue with that, but feet suffer and swell by the end of the flight. Sneakers are absolutely cool," Denysenko told Reuters.

"God forbid, but if a crew has to do a landing in water and an evacuation. Heels can damage the ladder and it won't be very comfortable to swim in a skirt," she said.

The company said they researched the history of cabin crew uniforms and decided to ditch what they called "conservative" elements of a flight attendant's look. Braids will now replace a tight bun or ponytail hairstyle.

"We found out that despite the fact that the image of a female flight attendant is very romanticized, their job demands a lot of physical training," the head of the SkyUp Airlines marketing department, Marianna Grygorash, said.

Grygorash said the company also plans to launch a new uniform for male crew. It will have a light suit instead of a vest, and a T-shirt instead of a collared shirt, combined with black Nike sneakers.

"If the whole world and all fashionistas wear sneakers, why not to bring it to aviation?" flight attendant Zoryana said.

There's a first time for everything.

On August 18, 1998, the Frankfurt station loaded an unusual cargo item into the lower deck of a B-767; a 1952 'Pegaso' oldtimer destined for the Toronto 'Cars of the Century' show.

This museum car was given special care - not only because of its vintage, but also because it was the first time a car was put in the hold of a B-767. Usually, cargo this size is transported on a B-747.

Supervised by Frankfurt operations' agents and sales representatives, this special cargo is a new source for higher yield. On top of that, the car arrived three days ahead of our competition!

Happy 50th (1948 - 1998) Anniversary to the Caribbean, Nassau and Bermuda.

On December 3, 1948, Air Canada's inaugural flight to the Caribbean landed at Port of Spain's Piarco International Airport at 8:30 am.

This bi-weekly service from Montreal via Toronto by Trans-Canada Air Lines - Air Canada's name back then - was provided by a 40-passenger propeller aircraft, the Canadair DC-4M 'North Star'.

Flight time was 15 hours with stops in the Bahamas and Jamaica. Because of stop-overs and rest periods, flight crews regularly spent six days on the islands before returning to their Canadian base. Service to Hamilton, Bermuda soon followed.

Subscriber Peter Wallis advised that former Canadian Airlines CEO, Rhys Eyton, has been inducted into the Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame (CAHF) as a member for 2022.

tmb rhys eyton

Excerpt from the CAHF website:

A leader in Canada’s commercial aviation sector, Rhys Eyton joined the Finance Department of Pacific Western Airlines in 1967. Over the next decade he assumed positions of increasing responsibility until, in March 1976, he was appointed President and CEO of the airline.

In addition to streamlining the company, Rhys began to acquire regional carriers and then, in 1987, Canadian Pacific Air Lines. The new company, Canadian Airlines, expanded again following a merger with Wardair. In 1989 Rhys was appointed Chairman, President, and CEO of Canadian Airlines International and served in this capacity until retirement in 1995.

With the permission of Larry Milberry, this information on a Nordair DC-4.

The first place that I photographed a DC-4 was at Dorval in 1959. Here's a later scene there showing CF-JIR in Nordair colours on September 5, 1960.

Delivered to the USAAF in 1944, it had gone to Pan Am in 1947 as N88923, 'Clipper West Wind'. It migrated to Colombia in 1953, before reaching Canada in 1957 for Eastern Canada Stevedoring Co., which used it to position ships' crews around the country.

Various Dorval-based air carriers later flew "JIR". It returned to the USA in 1969 as N3802. Various adventures ensued, some suggesting that the old crock still could get into trouble. It was scrapped in Florida in 1984.

Ken Pickford found the video linked below posted by Reel Life / CanadaMotorSport on YouTube On November 5, 2021.

The video was taken in 1992 at Calgary and includes at least one member of almost the entire Canadian Airlines mainline fleet then (except the B-747-400) - a few B-737's, 2 B-767's, 1 DC-10, 1 A320 (landing at 16:02).

The B-737 being pushed backwards from the hangar (pictured below) is an ex-Pacific Western B-737 Combi (C-GOPW) equipped with a gravel kit. Then age 12 years, delivered to PW in 1980, then with the 'Canadian North' part of CP, named 'Spirit of Norman Wells'.

It went on to the independent Canadian North in 2001 and spent 20 yrs there. Still in service with Air Inuit, only acquired a few months ago at age 41. 

See NetLetter #1333 for our article on the Canadian North fleet (including C-GOPW) from December 2015.

Editors' Note: Two AC B-727-200's from 16:29 to 16:34. More than half of the 39 AC 727's had already left the fleet. Twelve more went in '92 and the last five in '93. All except a couple went to FedEx for freighter conversion.

One AC A320 seen near the beginning and an AC B-767 after the B-727's are painted with the short lived livery where a burgundy stripe was added.

Flair Airlines

As Canada's largest airlines struggle to pick up the pieces in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, an Edmonton-based discount carrier with ambitious expansion plans has been looking for opportunities amidst the wreckage.

A privately held company, Flair launched in 2004 as a charter operator and transitioned to regularly scheduled service three years ago. But it's only been in the last 12 months — a period that coincided with an unprecedented collapse in demand for air travel due to the pandemic — that Flair has been aggressively pursuing growth plans, stating publicly that it wants to grow its fleet to 50 aircraft within the next five years.

It is both increasing the size of its fleet and expanding its service to new destinations in Canada and the U.S. The airline said it will add four new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to its fleet in the spring of 2022. It will also launch service between Toronto and Victoria and to Comox, B.C., for the first time.


The Limits of STOL Competitions.

When STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) competitions first started, it was merely about takeoff and landing distances.

Purveyors of the High Sierra Fly-in decided that wasn’t enough, so they decided to add a race-themed STOL contest that could turn into more of a spectator sport and through their recent acceptance with the FAA and the Reno Air Race Association, STOL Drag is taking the STOL competition world by storm, with licensed events happening all across the country.

ArkanSTOL, an event sponsored by the Aviat Aircraft Company, touts itself as “an entirely unique experience,” and having just reviewed the definition of the word, that description is well-fitting.

Pilots who volunteer to take part in the Ozark Backwoods Challenge are tasked with taking off from one runway, landing and taking off at three other runways, and then returning back to the start runway where they must cross a timing gate to stop the clock on the course.

What is a 'Flag Carrier'?

The NetLetter Team recently has had an interesting discussion concerning use of the term 'Flag Carrier".

What criteria defines a country's 'Flag Carrier', (or 'National Airline') and is the term actually relevant and, if so, is it used accurately?

A Google search turns up quite a list of reference sites on the internet with a variety of views. Following is an excerpt from Wikipedia of 'Flag Carrier' that is both concise and vague.

'A flag carrier is a transportation company, such as an airline or shipping company, that, being locally registered in a given sovereign state, enjoys preferential rights or privileges accorded by the government for international operations.

Historically, the term was used to refer to airlines owned by the government of their home country and associated with the national identity of that country. Such an airline may also be known as a national airline or a national carrier, although this can have different legal meanings in some countries. Today, it is any international airline with a strong connection to its home country or that represents its home country internationally, regardless of whether it is government-owned.'

Miriam-Webster simply states: An air or sea transport line flying the flag of the country to which it belongs.

So, it seems that 'Flag Carrier' is a term with an ever evolving definition. Deregulation and privatization have significantly changed the perception of a 'Flag Carrier'. It may be argued that, since apparently any airline can just apply a flag to its fuselage, the term is overused to the point of being redundant.

TCA / Air Canada has long  been considered to be Canada's 'Flag Carrier' due to its history of government ownership. However, Canadian Pacific Air Lines can also be considered a 'Flag Carrier' because it proudly bore the Canadian Flag on its livery while it was the Canadian carrier crossing the Pacific and on its other international routes. 

WestJet aircraft have a Canadian Flag on their aircraft fuselages, close to the aircraft registration, and proudly identifies as Canadian on international routes. 

It is commonly believed that the United States has never had a 'Flag Carrier', however, although it has never had a 'state-owned' airline, it has had (and still has) several 'Flag Carriers'.

See a List of Approved U.S. Flag Air Carriers from Georgetown University.

Terry's Trivia and Travel Tips

Terry BakerTerry Baker, co-founder of the NetLetter scours the internet for aviation related Trivia and Travel Tips for you, our readers, to peruse.

Alitalia, a one-time symbol of Italian style and glamour brought low by economic mismanagement, operated its last flight on Thursday October 14, 2021 after 75 years, before handing over to its downsized successor Italia Trasporto Aereo (ITA).

The traditional choice of popes, prima donnas and Italy's political elite, Alitalia has been run by a state-appointed administrator since 2017 to avoid being liquidated. 

A night flight from Sardinia's capital Cagliari due to land in Rome marked the final bow for the airline founded in 1946, after a dizzying succession of restructurings and changes of ownership.

India sells struggling Air India back to Tata conglomerate.

Tea-to-software Indian giant Tata is buying back Air India, 89 years after founding it as Tata Air and half a century following its nationalization, the government said Friday. 

The 180-billion-rupee ($2.4-billion) deal marks the end of a lengthy effort to privatize the heavily-indebted flag carrier that according to the government has eaten up 1.1 trillion rupees ($14.7 billion) in public money since 2009.

The airline was founded in 1932 with the first flight piloted by Tata's eponymous chairman himself JRD Tata, flying mail and passengers in a single-propeller de Havilland Puss Moth from Karachi to Bombay, as Mumbai was known then.

Tata Air offered a slice of the high life with Bollywood actresses in its adverts and at one point commissioning Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dali to design its ashtrays.

The airline was nationalized in the 1950s and in the decades that followed the "Maharaja of the Skies" became synonymous with the hopes and ambitions of the newly independent country.

"Welcome back, Air India," Tata's patriarch chairman emeritus Ratan Tata tweeted on Friday, while admitting it "would take considerable effort to rebuild" the company.

The airline at one time "gained the reputation of being one of the most prestigious airlines in the world. Tatas will have the opportunity of regaining the image and reputation it enjoyed in earlier years," he said.
