Has anyone started seeing any G20 activity at YYZ yet?


Well, It’s not YYZ but it is the first i have found arriving for the summit,

Chinese President Hu Jintao arriving in Ottawa yesterday.

I feel like I am talking to myself being the first to post a reply :laughing:


At approximately 12:30, what looked like a C17 Globemaster flew over my work (Don Valley/401 area). It was flying directly away from me, so I didn’t have any capability to look closely at it, however A) it was big B) it had 4 engines C) it had a long flat lower tail section and D) it was grey.

It was flying the “normal” route into YYZ, namely parallel/over the 401.

I say C17 primarily due to this web site, assuming this to be authoritative on transporting the President’s car, not because I can tell the difference (at a distance) between a C17 and a C5A.
