Status: New - On June 22nd 1985 two aircraft left Vancouver on the west coast of Canada:one was bound for Japan, the other flew east to Montreal to connect passengers and luggage with Air India 182 to Delhi. Both aircraft carried suitcases containing bombs, one exploded at Narita Airport, killing two baggage-handlers - the other ripped open a jumbo jet over the Irish Sea murdering 329 people.Why did these tragic events take place? How could the security arrangementssurrounding international flights have been so easily breached? And who wasbehind this cruel attack upon innocents that left two nations in mourning and stunned the world?Salim Jiwa, a senior investigative reporter for a Vancouver daily, The Province, has followed this case from the beginning. His privileged access to the police investigation and his in-depth knowledge of India's political tensions has frequently kept him many steps ahead of the news. His account of The Death of Air India Flight 182 is an authentic contribution to the history of terrorist activity in our time.

Orbx FTX Pacific Northwest region is truly a stunning achievement which combines all the elements of the much celebrated FTX AU region series, but goes much further. This product covers about 156,000 square miles of western North America comprised of large parts of Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. It reaches from north of Vancouver Island to southern Oregon and inland to just east of the crest of the Cascade mountains. Major cities in the region are Vancouver (BC), Seattle (WA), and Portland (OR). Dominated by the towering volcanoes and sharp ridges of the Cascade Ranges and Coast Mountains the Pacific Northwest of North America also features large metropolitan areas, flat valley bottoms with extensive farmland, hundreds of coastal islands of all sizes, and endless forested mountains with a long history of forestry operations. More than 450 airfields, from large international airports to tiny airstrips, are spread throughout the region, each of which have been enhanced over the default with corrections to runway position, elevations and many additional buildings and objects placed by hand.To PNW we have amped the quality of the ground textures to the next level, and sourced them from pristine imagery to create beautifully crisp terrain even at ground level.Going further, we've added photoreal areas above the tree line to many mountains, glaciers, lava flows, as well as including photoreal Seattle CBD, the ports of Tacoma and Olympia, KPAE, Bonneville Dam and many other POI's. Additionally we have created brand new autogen textures, hand-crafted every square mile of landclass, included full moving traffic, 3D night lighting and much more! The icing on the cake? Over 450 airports in the region have been upgraded with custom buildings and objects, elevation corr

...We arrived at Vancouver international airport on a flight from London Heathrow. I am afraid to say that upon arrival we had a connecting flight to make to Vancouver Island (Via float plane) so I did not have chance to take much in as it was bit of a rush due to out flight being an hour late arriving. However saying that the initial impressions were favourable. It has been several years since I...

...Vancouver International Airport (YVR) - British Columbia - Canada
If any of you have read any of my recent reviews, you will know that back in January I spent three weeks in Canada. Whilst there I spent two weeks in Vancouver and a week in the Yukon.
