Wings900 Nimbus International Airport

Nimbus International Airport (IATA: YNI, ICAO: CYNI) is a new international airport based near Vancouver, Canada.

The airport is served by the following airlines:
  • American Airlines from Phoenix operating the Boeing 737-800
  • Delta Airlines from Los Angeles operating the Airbus A321-200
  • Air Canada from Toronto operating the Boeing 787-8
  • Northwest from Detroit and Minneapolis-St. Paul operating the Boeing 787-8
  • La Compagnie from Paris-CDG (with an intermediate stop at Montreal-Mirabel) operating the Boeing 757
  • Virgin Atlantic from London Heathrow operating the Boeing 787-9
  • Thai Airways from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi operating a mix of Boeing 777-300ER and Airbus A340-600 aircraft
    Jin Air from Seoul and Jeju International operating the Boeing 777-200

Cargo airline BAX Global also has two DC-8 aircraft based at the airport. A Boeing 727 of Pan American World Airways is also based at the airport, for historical charter flights.



Jin Air is the most recent arrival at YNI, with their first foray into the transpacific market.


Northwest has also made a major move into the Canadian market with their new routes.
Northwest is offering the highest levels of service on their brand-new 787 aircraft. Passengers in both business, premium economy and economy have access to updated meals and IFE. Northwest has most recently added live inflight radio. Passengers in all classes can listen to radio stations worldwide, from local CBC radio to American channels such as WZAZ Chicago and more.

Re: Nimbus International Airport

Welcome to the Forum. Seems like you have a nice layout there! I really like the La Compagnie 757, wish we had one in 1:500! Consider using some GSE. It might be expensive, but it sure makes every diorama look even better!

Re: Nimbus International Airport

Really cool models! The Jin Air 777 and La Compagnie 757 are beautiful
Although I personally don't like the mix of eras and the use of fantasy models... anyway, that's up to you.
You should add some GSE, it's pretty much necessary for every diorama.

Fascinating airport! Interesting decision on La Compagnies part!

Re: Nimbus International Airport

Thanks all for the replies. I do have a single GSE set, but obviously that's not enough for wide shots showing multiple gates. I'll have to buy some more. Really does miracles for realism.

Yes, I know that fantasy models can be quite.........controversial. I don't really mind them much myself, the way I see it they're a reminder of a better, less bland industry. To each his own I guess!

Re: Nimbus International Airport

I love the La Compagnie B757. Beautiful shade of blue.

Well, UPS did use DC-8s for a long time, so seeing DC-8s is not that off. Neither is seeing an enthusiasts charter! As Pan Am is defunct: Nothing stopped what I assume is an enthusiast charter company from using their ironic colors. So I don't think there is a mix of eras...

What are you talking about, there is no DC-8 in his pictures.

Since there are no 727-100s flying in Pan Am colors nowadays (the ones just like this model only flew in a distant past), it's a mix of era. Well, the diorama is not mine, this is just my opinion.
