I believe this our first Boeing 737-900ER model on the website. N75428 is actually one of the few of this popular variant that fly into Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). We had to dig back into the archives a bit to pull these photos taken on April 18, 2016. United Airlines may be the only Boeing 737-900ER that lands at YYZ (I could be wrong) and it comes in late in the day when the lighting isn’t so great.
