A few days back, we had occasion to visit the airplane’s old home base, CYTZ. The summer construction has nearly completed, and the new ferry and buildings are looking sharp!

All the concrete & steel structure was not the only thing sharp looking. So were all the Porter Airlines staff, and most of the passengers. For that matter, Robert Deluce (the airline’s handsome head honcho), whom we ran into during our visit, walked around with a Cheshire Cat smile/strut. And no wonder: after years of political obstruction, the airline is up and running.

With our having left town, my already small contribution to the airport’s upkeep has gone away. I wish them good luck.

There are some before and after pictures in the archives.
