I was also under the impression they the current conditions (including yempe) were updated once an hour on the hour (thought the updates often come a bit late). I was surprised so hear that this had changed, though I was thinking it was about time. ac888yow's explanation makes more sense.

I also know that the weather data used to update once an hour. I recall years ago seeing the weather guy come out of the ATC tower like clockwork every hour and walk a circuit around the parking lot while observing the conditions. He'd then go back inside and do the weather update. I used to spend a lot of time up there...

If it's still done the same way the 2100 data might have been from 2011, perhaps better explaining the huge drop. If it's a true drop of that magnitude in 11 minutes, that's nuts.
I believe during weather events like thunderstorms or high wind events they measure more frequently. I've seen weather.gc.ca report more frequently than hourly during those type of events. It is quite possible the temperature dropped that quickly in 11 minutes. I was sitting near a window an in about 15 minutes it went from high wind and rain to high wind and ice grains and finally to high wind and snow.

Yep. Whenever there's a drastic change in conditions, it'll get updated to the minute. Otherwise, Environment Canada gets updated hourly on the hour (on the 1/2 hour in Newfoundland!).

Cool. The MAX will be here sooner than expected. Now does that replace a 320 or an E90? If it's the latter, that's a nice upgauge in capacity for two flights/week.

I flew from YOW to IAD last week, with customs pre-clearance in Ottawa, and was surprised that there is no longer a need to complete a paper declaration form. It's all based on your input of just a few logistical details made at the computer kiosk, and your scanned passport (and biometric face-matching I assume) now. I inquired and the US official said that the process changed as of Nov 1, 2017. It was the fastest US border crossing I've ever experienced.

Upon my return to Canada (via YYZ) there was a similar process, with the familiar customs declaration being made entirely at a computer kiosk, and then I was directed to bypass the customs agent. Very fast. And I'm not a Nexus or TSA-Pre user.

It looks like before 16DEC that flight is served be a 320, but on/after 16DEC the 320 gets shifted to AC472/473 (which was previously an E90), so there is an overall capacity upgrade. It aligns with the busier winter travel season as well (all of ACs sun flights out of Ottawa start around that date).

Dreams Take Flight day, so tomorrow there will be a morning Rapidair served by the 763.

On a separate note, Sunwing actually sent a leased plane directly to YOW on Monday from Jetairfly in Belgium.

Probably sent directly here to operate today's WG flight to VRA.

It ran YOW-PUJ this morning, and is going to do YOW-YQG-VRA later this evening.

Cool. Is the YQG stop only until we hit peak season next month?

Next week it will run YOW-VRA direct (same flight number, WG266). Usually the first flights of the season get triangled, I believe VRA/CUN both got routed through YYZ last weekend.

Unrelated, a B752 carrying the Phoenix Coyotes will be here this evening and will stay through Saturday.

The first Jazz CR2 is now painted in the new livery.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPQD...ature=youtu.be

Apparently this was the last aircraft in the Jazz yellow maple leaf livery.

How many old Jazz livery aircraft are there left out there?

Thanks for posting this. Reminds me a little bit of the Delta CRJ's colour scheme. I personally loved the old Jazz red/green/yellow/orange liveries and will miss them.

I'm not sure how many are left, but I'd bet that there are more JZA aircraft with the new livery than the maple leaf one.

The freezing rain/snow caused AC466 and AC1221 to divert to BOS last night.
