Cathay Pacific Cargo 747-867F [B-LJF] Snowy Takeoff From Calgary Airport ᴴᴰ

Cathay Pacific Cargo is a regular visitor to YYC, operating two flights a week with their 747-8 Freighter, but the flights almost always arrive in the middle of the night. Today seemed to be an exception, with the aircraft remaining on the ground for over 12 hours (apparently for crew rest) and leaving right around 4PM local time. Here we have, in my first video filmed in 2017, B-LJF taxiing and departing a very snowy Calgary International Airport, with ATC included. Enjoy!

Thanks for watching!

    Probably full of horses for live slaughter in China. They want the meat fresh.
