Neat photo of Toronto from the air

Received this photo from my brother.  His friend is a captain on a 777 and took this picture.  Unusual perspective.

Great shot Frank and as you say, a very unusual angle.  Presumably on final for 24L at YYZ?

Here is one from 1977 - the 'usual' perspective but interesting as the skyline is devoid of many current landmarks :-)

Here's a younger 'Roger that' on the above photo run - Cessna 150 at the Island Airport  ;-)

Here's another from the same flight, this time looking from the west.

An interesting side note - Frank started this thread.  He knew George Hamann architect, very well.  Around the year 2000 - 2003, I knew Sidney Bregman, architect, both founding members of Bregman + Hamann Architects (Now B+H Architects), who designed the 3 black TD buildings in these photos!  Who would've known that all these years later, Frank and I would be playing with foamies in a farmer's field in Stouffville?

Small world - eh?
