Gimli glider's last Air Canada flight

You’ve probably all seen this already, but today the Gimli Glider takes its last flight as an Air Canada aircraft, almost 25 years after its famous power-off glide to a landing in Gimli, Manitoba.

The original pilots and some of the crew members are on board as it heads from Montreal to Tucson on its way to a bone yard in the Mojave desert.

    I was taking off shortly after them, so I got to hear some of their ATC communications. Their call sign was “Air Canada Glider”:)
