Montréal Airport Pierre-Eliott Trudeau - ( YUL - CYUL )


Montreal is Canada's largest, in the province of Quebec. Located 15km west of the city, the Pierre-Elliott Trudeau owes its name to a popular politician who was twice prime minister and who undertook significant changes in its terms. The complex, located in the small city of Dorval, has a large terminal located west oriented two-24L 06R and 24R-06L which it is intersected by a shorter 28-10 parallel tracks. In the center of the two parallel tracks maintenance center Air Canada. Always between two parallel but to the east is the factory Bombardier aircraft manufacturing with assembly private planes like "Challenger" chain. Southeast is a small general aviation terminal and messaging, with some specific flights including air bridge to the northern city carrying labor mines. The runway use is determined by the wind, 24L-06R generally used for departures, 24R-06L for arrivals. The 28-10 are rarely used and demand for small regional aircraft if a strong wind dictates. Airlines Air Canada, Air Canada Express, Jazz, Jetz, Air Canada Red and Air Transat have established their base in Montreal, as the charters Sunwings and Westjet. Other companies Raglan, First Air, Air Inuit, Air and Canadian North Creebeq also operate regular flights from the ground. From the USA, American, United, Delta insure their rotations using models "short haul".
Long distance flights mainly from Europe, the Middle East and North Africa are operated by Air France, KLM, Lufthansa, Qatar, Royal Jordanian, Royal Air Moroc, Air Algerie and Syphax. There are no pure cargo business, except occasionally flights transporting heavy equipment for the needs of the Bombardier plant. The freight operations are concentrated in Mirabel, the old airport. Perspective traffic, a rush of departures was observed in the morning between 7 and 9 with regional companies. Then from 11am these flights return to mingling with many long-haul and large aircraft. Between 15 and 18h are incessant departures as small as large appliances and the day ends with the return of the regional fleet until the nightfall. Throughout the day, business flights are added as test flights of new aircraft manufactured by Bombardier on the site and deliveries.

Our trip to Montreal was precipitated by the announced end of operations MD11 type aircraft by the Dutch airline KLM. Since these are the last flights operated in the world with this type of equipment, we then booked our seats for the test. After a fantastic flight from 7am aboard PH-KCB we put the wheels on Canadian soil. We had planned to dedicate the first two days to shoot around this new field for us and luckily the sun was present before hiding unfortunately tour that followed during our stay. Following much work to Taxiway of the southern runway, procedures have been slightly altered.
All light and medium were directed to the southern runway where we were, all long-haul landing and taking off from the north runway. That's why we had little large aircraft to illustrate in this report, but in absolute terms it was those rare regional aircraft that were targeted, with experience of European birds.

Without further ado, I'll let you see the harvest of photos taken during our two days, and a few shots from the terminal when we head to the door of our flight home.
