Photo of the Week: Island Airport

Toronto 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.
