| Shalom and greetings all my pals,
Here is world's most exclusive nice tour of one of my favorite airports CYYJ Victoria International Airport located 14 miles north northwest of the city of Victoria in North Saanich quite close to the town of Sidney on the Saanich Peninsula on the island of Vancouver Island.
Mighty Wardair 742 waiting for take off clearance for departure to London, England via refueling stopover in Calgary
Fokker 100-650 being pushback from gate 10 for flight to Edmonton while in background WestJet 737 was entering into taxiway to taxi to runway for flight to Ottawa
Alaska Airlines 739 being pushed back from gate 10 for flight to PANC while another WestJet 737 was taxiing to runway for flight to Winnepeg
On hold awaiting for take off clearance for flight to the destination that this plane is christened after.
Nice view of Otter and Dash planes. The former is doing many CYVR to CYYJ to CYVR shuttle flights while the latter is handling KSEA to CYYJ to KSEA flights
Victoria International airport is one of main choices for emergency diversion in event Vancouver international airport is closed due to fog, bad weather, or any kind of emergency. Here is CYVR bound cargo 757 crossing Alaska from PANC receiving announcement from CYVR to divert to CYYJ due to complete shutdown of CYVR as result of security breach in some check in luggage section
Making emergency diversion to Victoria international airport

Excuse me for having to unload cargo first to be carried out to Vancouver by ferry boat so that the tour of CYYJ can be countinued
Resuming tour of CYYJ
Crossing runway to get to other side of CYYJ where passenger terminal area is
Look at nice ground markings indicating gate numbers
Heading to gate 9 using 9A marking
Gate 9 is my favorite gate for 757s and A32xs and A31Xs

Third Westjet 737 leaving gate 2 for flight to Toronto and gate one is reserved for widebody planes as seen on background of 777-200LR
