WHY DO BOEING 737-200s STILL FLY IN CANADA? | Dipbar Update

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to try a different style of video, featuring, well, my voice. Today’s video aims to answer the question of why so many Boeing 737-200s are still in service in Canada, a fairly advanced country with the 10th largest economy.

This has been in the works for quite a while, so do let me know what you think of it, and if I should do more videos like this one!

Thanks for watching!

  1. They are/were also still in commercial service in Europe. Especially with Star Alliance airlines who often use very old aircraft compared to their competitors.

  2. Very cool. I flew up to Cambridge Bay in the winter of 2015 and saw the Canadian North 737-200s; I was supposed to fly on one but the flight got changed to a Summit Avro RJ85 (a miserable aircraft) for the Edmonton to Yellowknife portion of the flight.

  3. Damn good video. I occasionally see a -200 charter fly out of DAL, and those JT8Ds are *loud*.

    But the old 727 that flies out of there has three of those engines, and it will shatter your molars when it goes over…

  4. Super awesome video and great topic!! What most people also don’t know is that some companies still use the vintage interior with the wide comfortable seats and they are great to fly on! (I used to work for one of the said companies on your list👍🏻). Keep up the great work on your channel!

  5. Nice video. I flew 6 years in the Canadian Arctic (King Air, B1900, LR35). We used Canadian North (737-200) as a commuter from Ottawa to Iqaluit and First Air from Winnipeg to Rankin Inlet. As a fun fact, only two airports in Nunavut have paved runways (Rankin Inlet and Iqaluit). It's true that less and less -200s are seen around. I personally don't like the -200 combi. It's very noisy, but I see their (business) attractiveness.

  6. I learned a lot about Canada. 10th largest economy with less than 40 million people. 2nd largest in land mass. I imagine Canada would welcome
    a little Global Warming. Seems they could really take advantage of the Global Warming scare — have a real estate boom. Might be a future topic?

  7. Very good! I am familiar with Nolinor. The Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport is my hometown aerodrome. Nolinor routinely flies their Boeing 737-200Fs to CVG to deliver their cargo to the DHL / ABX / Amazon hub. They will also dispatch their Convair 580s to CVG. Nolinor is a fine airline & they are always welcome at CVG!

  8. This is very, very risky. The cycles on the air frame are way to high to be trusted. A fatigue crack will/has developed and a decompression is not that far off.

  9. Thanks. Great video. Several airlines us variants of different 737s for combining freight and passenger service. Alaska Air is another.
    The 737 is like the DC3 in they venerable, rugged, versatile and still flying.

  10. Interesting! Thanks for putting this together. I always knew the larger engines of newer 737s presented problems, but I had no idea that the older planes were so essential in remote Canada.

  11. Are the gravel kits effective when applying max thrust reverse at landing touchdown?
    It seems with the reverse jet blast going forward faster than the landing taxi, lots of gravel could be scooped up and shoved forward into the engine inlet.

  12. Watching Air Norths 200 land and take off in Dawson City Yukon a few years back was a real treat. Prety much a maximum thrust take off from what I understand.
    I live in south CYEG and my house is right under the flight path for RW 20 so Isee them alot, they are easily identified by the much noisier engines.

  13. Really quite interesting. I never expected anyone to still not only be using but preferring the -200, at least anyone operating in the first world, but this makes sense.

  14. Can they get new replacement engines? Or they rebuild them. Somebody must make a new aircraft that is suitable to replace. Or maybe they have to buy up the last ju 52s available and press them back into service.

  15. Great video. It's kind of … I don't know. It's like when I see a PC running Windows 98 because that's the last version that would run the software that a company can't find a replacement for. Or, it's like people rebuilding the living crap out of air-cooled VWs .. no, I guess it's not like that. A number of airports – even the ones in the outposts of civilization – are phasing out gasoline, so no more piston planes, and that's good for the people who are still running DC-6s and 7s, because suddenly there's a new source of spares.
    I heard a while back, that due to the eradication of polio, there's no market for iron lungs, so all of the companies that used to make them have either gone out of business or moved into other areas. But for the people still alive who depend on iron lungs, it means that it's an ongoing struggle to have replacement parts made by hand when needed. I guess this is kind of the opposite of that, but in aviation, the equipment costs so much, people will do whatever it takes to keep them running. The JT8D is almost sixty years old, but that's not at all unusual, when it comes to aircraft powerplants.
    But it's even stranger than that. I look at a 732, and it doesn't look old. Yeah, those engines are kind of narrow, but the plane is every bit as beautiful as it was before we had computers in our homes, much less our pockets.

  16. I will let my ignorance show: 1. How is snow/ice removed from unimproved runways? 2. Can these 37s land on a layer of ice/snow.
    Most aircraft I have seen operating in Greenland, Antarctica etc have been turboprops.

  17. It warms my heart to see so many older 732s still out there, performing necessary tasks for their country’s economy.

    Much like the rb211, the old jt8d sounds like no other engine. It’s loss is something I’m going to mourn when the last one finally shuts down for good.

  18. ive rode on first airs' and canadian norths' 200s for quite a while. the high power take-offs out of cambridge bay was allways cool… they throw up soo much dust you have to wait 10 minutes before you can leave

  19. My dad worked at an airport in the70s, one time he went on board to check the fuel gauges before anyone was onboard, he had a lit cigar in his mouth, remember this was the 70s, well, he ended up "losing" his lit cigar, totally disappeared, long story short, the plane never left the ground, about 15 min later the ground crew saw smoke coming from the plane, half of the inside of the plane was smoldering, way to go Dad, hope you learned something from this…
