Last March I took the Helijet in from Victoria and got a great view of the city. Only problem is I ended up on the wrong side of the helicopter to see downtown. However, I did get some cool pictures of the suburbs.
Here's the Highway 99 and Highway 91 interchange looking east
Here's Brentwood looking east and also you can see the TCH under-construction
The only picture I got of downtown, sorry for the bad quality
