Nine DHC-7's at Toronto City Center in Oct-2015


Not likely to ever see a similar view elsewhere, a couple of unique overview shots from the Trans Capital ramp at Toronto City Center (CYTZ) in early October. 

Six DHC-7's in view, with another three (ex Arkia and Carbocol) on the far side of field, and partial remains of two others (ex Arkia) against the hangar not visible.
