Location given below puts it just NE of the airport, not in line with any of the runways.

Anyone else seen the video of the accident, looked like it rolled over on the way down. Apparently it was headed to the Arizona bone yard to be decommissioned after landing in Georgia.

Don’t know if fata, but video released of AC 759 near miss at SFO.

Not fata. I mean... as I recall there were comments made about this being extremely close to the worst aircraft incident in history, and people were brushing them off as hyperbolic. Well there you go.

At noon today WestJet is revealing their new livery and interior features on their upcoming 787-9's. Apparently it will be live on their Facebook page.

I'm excited to see the new planes and what they plan for business class on the dreamliner.

There's sound, it's just trash quality and volume.

I wish companies wouldn't use Facebook for corporate stuff. Hate hate hate Facebook.

Not on the live feed, but Scott Dippel at CBC tweeted out the livery:

https://twitter.com/CBCScott/status/993915242743848961

Kind of a "meh" from me, based on that old blurred version out earlier I was hoping for some colour on the engines and maybe even the lower belly. Not sure what I think of "The Spirit of Canada" wording.

Their problem right now is a lack of business class on the rest of their fleet. More serious J fliers aren't going want to get off that J class and into a Plus seat with a fruit cup for the last leg of their trip.

Ugh, they went with the 3-3-3 in economy. I much prefer the 2-4-2.
