An Ongoing Passion for Flight & Flying Designs
For over a decade, we have actively pursued our perpetual fascination and awe with the ever-expanding universe of flight. The following portfolio reflects this with the spectacular diversity of airlines, their liveries, history, and aircraft.
Following our passion for local photography, the images in this blog are exclusively captured at Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ), the 2nd busiest international airport in the Americas by passenger count. It's quite an astonishing feat, and by way of reference, this equates to 49.5 million passengers per year, just over ten million short of New York’s JFK International Airport passenger volume. Originally named Malton Airport, it received its first passenger flight on August 29th, 1939, bringing it near to its 80 year anniversary. The modern name change occurred in 1984, honoring Lester B. Pearson, Canada’s 14th Prime Minister and a recipient of the Nobel Peace prize in 1957. With two terminals and five active runways, Pearson served close to a whopping half-million aircraft movements in 2018. True to its location, Pearson sports the world’s largest de-icing facility, a quintessentially Canadian feat.
Furthermore, our adventure expands beyond these images. We have included a story behind each aircraft that highlights the unique history and set of circumstances that guide the aircraft to YYZ, completing this voyage of discovery.
