Air Canada Boeing 777 air-to-air footage taken from chase plane over Vancouver on a pre-delivery test flight flown out of Seattle back in March or April of 2007. It is a shame they chose such poor weather for this air-to-air flight.

The 1970s was an era of transition for Air Canada. The airline retired the last of the very popular Vickers Viscounts, as well as the Vickers Vanguards, and introduced the new widebody Boeing 747 and Lockheed L-1011 Tristar aircraft. These start-of-the-art high capacity airliners truly made travel by air a mass-market phenomena for the travelling public.
In this DVD we start out with a very historic film reel filmed by Air Canada's PR department on the occasion of the very last Vickers Viscount service between Sault Ste. Marie and Toronto on April 1, 1974. The film quality is not up to today's standards but to see this footage (filmed mostly on board) is as close to time machine as we're going to experience.
We then present early 1970s promotional films made by the airline to introduce the new 747 and L-1011. The L-1011 film is hosted by TV personality of the day Don McGowan, and also features an interview with Air Canada's fleet planning expert Clayton Glen. Also included are a number of 1970s era Air Canada TV adverts that promote the brand new widebody aircraft, services and destinations of the day.
Aircraft fans will enjoy the Douglas DC-9 stock footage reels, which includes some very neat air-to-air footage of the baby DC-9. The 1976 aircraft action footage filmed mostly at YVR is the icing on the cake, and features great scenes of Air Canada DC-9s, 747s, Tristars, and DC-8s in glorious action!
This TV advert is brand new (summer 2007)from Air North, Yukon's airline. It shows Air North's Boeing 737-200 in the new Air North colours arriving at Whitehorse Airport, up in Canada's Yukon Territories.

This morning I had the immense pleasure of spending some quality time at the airport to capture the Air North Boeing 737-200 departure operating a charter from the South Terminal. I had to pinch myself to make sure it was not a dream .. seeing active 737-200s in 2014 in Canada is a dream come true!
