Photo of the Week: Island Airport

I spent a few days in Toronto last weekend. My first time in Canada and my first time on a propeller plane. We had a nice sunset departure on Monday evening from Toronto's Island Airport.
For the aviation buffs out there, this is a Porter Airlines Bombardier Dash-8 Q 400 turboprop. If you're flying to Canada, I really cannot recommend Porter Airlines enough. They fly out of Midway, have the best customer service that I've experienced from an airline, and give you a free drink on the plane.
This was just before takeoff. I would have preferred a shot where the CN Tower wasn't bisected by the propeller blade, but you kind of have to take what you can get when shooting out of an airplane window.
