Remarks: Seen a day after it skidded off the runway. The quality isn´t great, but you can see the back slides and the spoiler deployed. Also, notice the left landing gear detached from the fuselage. They were really lucky, as the acft. stopped within meters of a deep ditch. This shot was taken as we were lifting off from Rwy 25R.
Remarks: The famous "Gimli Glider" has just been retired from the Air Canada fleet.But before her last trip to MHV,under the call sign "Air Canada Glider,she had to say goodbye for a last time with an amazing fly-by and wing shake over runway 06R in front of the AC hangar.
So long "Glider" you'll be missed for sure.
