What's that yellow thing in the sky?
The Jet City is in the midst of a rare sunny period that is expected to last until Wednesday of next week. Well on this chilly morning I was treated with a sight that one only sees in Seattle; a Lion Air 737-9GPER taxiing to the runway with a WestJet 737-7CT following closely behind:
In the picture is Lion Air's PK-LGP (cn 35732/3111) and it's about to depart on a pre delivery test flight as BOE043. WestJet's C-GWSP (cn 36693/3108) is about to depart on it's delivery flight as WJA8948 to YYC and is seen closely following the Lion Air 737 in order to have jet wash defrost the wings. Earlier in the day another Boeing 737 sat on the bravo taxiway for twenty minutes waiting for the wings to defrost in the sun. Boeing does have deicing vehicles, however they didn't seem to be using them today.
