The A380 is terrible looking.

That it certainly is. Horrible design but impressive plane.

DrNest May 3, 2016 2:33 PM

Aye, it's no Concorde to look at that's for sure. A heck of a lot quieter though!

Bigtime May 3, 2016 2:36 PM

Yup, she's a derpy bird but I'd gladly welcome one to YYC. :)

Biff May 3, 2016 2:40 PM

Having flown on one to Dubai it is definitely a massive piece of machinery. I do love the wings and their curves.

It really is a bit ungainly, damned impressive though.

The A380 is a real pain to control on the ground, at least here at YUL.

When AF flew here, there were all sorts of restrictions on the ground. When it was taxiing on the north ramp of the main apron, the wings didn't clear runway 28's protected area. So you couldnt use runway 28. Same thing on taxiway A versus a vehicle road that had to be sterilized before the A380 could pass. Not to mention the mandatory runway inspection after each A380 departure (which in itself isn't too bad, as you have to wait 3 minutes for wake turbulence separation anyways, so the inspection was fairly quick and uneventful)

None of this is purely the A380's fault, as YUL is an old airport and the layout is not conducive to all these big jets, but nonetheless, other Canadian airports might have similar problems as well. I know the controllers here are all glad the whalejet is not a regular anymore.

If YYC was to ever see one here (diversion or a regular flight) I think it could get around unrestricted if it used the new parallel and the new terminal once open. Things on the west side of the field and runway 17R/35L would probably have restrictions in place for it.

Are there any airfield restrictions when the Emirates A380 comes in? I believe there was runway/taxiway work done 10 years ago to accommodate the whale jet.

Hard to believe the Emirates A380 has been coming in for 7 years now!

It has the same restrictions as a B747-800, which we have overnight with Cargolux and Cathay. Biggest restrictions for a Code F passenger aircraft is not being able to use taxiways Golf and Foxtrot (by Westjet Hangar), and if the aircraft is on Taxiway Charlie north of Juliette (near A concourse), no other aircraft may pass on Taxiway Hotel. So to fit in with the other traffic flow it wouldn't be too bad. All the new pavement is designed for Code F aircraft (A380, A225, B748) so we are unrestricted on the new pavement!

Thanks for the knowledge from the tower Nick!

Yes, several. For example when the A380 is taxiing on A or B you cannot have another heavy on the other. Likewise with C and D. It has to enter the deice pad from T and not turn from E. You also cannot hold between 06L and 06R and still use 06R. If taxiing on C, it also infringes the RPA for 06L.

Well at least this happens only 3 days a week!

Any other aircraft causing restrictions? (aside from the obvious Soviet cargo planes that we can ignore for the purpose of this discussion).

Apart from the turn into the deice pad from E, the same restrictions apply for all code F aircraft. Occasionally Cathy brings in a B748 cargo and I've once seen Luthansa's B748 passenger jet.
I can add to the deice restriction in that when deicing is in progress, code F aircraft are not permitted on V between E and M. That one slipped my mind yesterday.

Fire is now at YMM airport. The Nova Hotel is gone along with a Gas Maintenance Facility. Portions of the airport Fire hall is damaged.If the fire has progressed further along the air fire attack base is threatened. On the other side of town the charter airlines are using the Shell aerodrome to evact people from the north.

Yup.

6L is closed, so they are using 10 for all landers, 6R for the heavies and those that go to the GA, and 6R for departures. The AAR is much better that way compared to single 6R ops.
