Big Jet Airliners passing over Winnipeg   Leave a comment


Many times during the day if you look skyward in Winnipeg you will see the contrails of Jet Airliners cruising very high over the city.  Winnipeg seems to be located in the path of many long haul airline routes.  At times there are 4-5 airliners cruising above the city at 40,000 feet (15,000 meters).

Below are some photos I recently took of the big birds in the sky:

This big jet has 4 engines. So it is either an Airbus A380, Airbus A340 or a Boeing 747.  These are the only 4 engine airliners operating today.  This one is likely headed to Japan or China.
