Thursday, May 9 marked my fifteenth - and last - Annual Public Meeting.
An amateur photog's behind-the-scenes look at an aerial photo shoot of YVR.
The pro shots are coming soon, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy this iPhone-supplied, behind-the-scenes take on what I can confidently call one of the highlights of my airport communications gig.
Each month we pick a specific aircraft type to be featured as our Aircraft of the Month. We try and give you some insight in to its use at YVR as well as provide specifications for aviation buffs. This month our aircraft is a Saab 340.
Put on your shopping shoes, or maybe just buy new ones at the YVR Spring Warehouse Sale. This one-day sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10 on the East Concourse, Level 3, past U.S. Departures underneath the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel.
Fans were treated to an extra special impromptu performance from Sholmali Kholgade, who broke out in her hit song, Lat Lag Gayi for the crowd at YVR.
It's that special time of year at YVR when the sun peeks out from behind the clouds, the flowers blossom and colours burst through the grey to brighten up the airport grounds. We interview Randy Sharp, a landscape architect who helps explain all the work that goes in to beautifying the Vancouver International Airport, and take a look at some of the flora that bloom this time of year.
Last week's was way too easy, so this time around we tried to make it a little more difficult.
In the wee hours of Monday morning, Er Shun and Da Mao, two of about 1,600 giant pandas left in the world, touched down after a long flight from Chengdu in a custom FedEx plane (pictured above and below) adorned with the panda image to indicate its special cargo.
Every so often YVR gets a special visitor at International Arrivals Level 2, and that day is today! Canadian Blood Services and the Bloodmobile are currently on site taking blood donations to help save lives and assist in medical procedures.
Feeedback on the future of Flight Path Park has been fantastic.
