West by Westjet

I just returned from a quick visit to Calgary.  I like planes and thought I’d make my return trip into a short video.  You can skip through some of the scenes if they are a little long.  This was WS 257, Calgary to Comox on a Boeing 737.700.  Westjet has some of the new 737 Max aircraft on order but I don’t think they are scheduled for delivery for a bit.  I’m hoping to get a ride on the new 787 Dreamliner later this year as it rolls into the Air Canada fleet.  I really like flying Westjet and have yet to have a bad experience with them!!

The video starts in Calgary, in sunny but frigid (-23C) weather, flies across BC, starts getting a bit cloudy just past Kamloops and then descends in cloudy, foggy weather to arrive in snowy (yes, it occasionally snows here) Comox.  At about 1:50 there is a cool shot of another WS 737 landing.  Enjoy!

    Hi Ben,
    thanks for the video, I didn’t realise you were away. I wish I liked flying, as you do.
    Love Jean x

  2. Pretty cool video Ben. I enjoyed taking the ride with you. I loved the shots leaving Calgary and over the mountains as the weather was so clear and the video quality excellent. Thanks for taking us along with you on the ride home. Neat music too!
