LIVE sightings go here!  :hearts:
 
Guidelines:
 
If you are posting a tweet, please post the actual tweet, the tweet time, the twitter user name is optional. If you remove it, please copy me the name.
 
For FB posts, please remove the FB name, but please send Peach (or me) the name and link for our records.
 
It is also wise to take a screenshot of any posts you want to see again, they disappear quickly.
 
Please be kind, and don't all bury the poor unsuspecting twitterer with questions, if you see another RFFer on the job, let them handle it. Rest assured that we try to follow up on all twitters/sightings.
 
If you are concerned that any info gained from any sighting or tweet may be private or confidential or just "too much too soon", feel free to PM or email Peach (or me) to ask before you post.
 
If you are bringing us a live sighting, :tu !! But please do  help us as much as you can with WHO (be descriptive, what they look like, is it a male/female team for example, what color they are wearing is helpful) WHAT are they doing, WHERE (as exactly as possible..street? airport gate? be specific!), WHEN (what time zone?, exact time), and any descriptions of the action! Pictures are treasured!
 
 
And even though we all get excited, please, once we have a possible location, take the discussion to the Speculation or Location threads and leave the Twitter zone free for incoming info! :ty3:
 
If you have a spoiler and prefer to share it privately, you are welcome to PM walkingpneumonia or Peach. You can also email Peach if my inbox is full or just if you prefer, my email is in my profile. Your confidentiality will be respected.

Tweet from ‏@kendy_ra

Pretty sure I just saw Amazing Race Canada teams at the #yyz airport. They denied it but I'm almost positive they were lying.

Another sighting on a flight to Calgary!

Kelsey Webb ‏@kelseyjlwebb 27m
I love playing detective. On the same plane to Calgary from Toronto with the Amazing Race Canada cast #knewit #matchingoutfits #dufflebags
8:17 PM Pacific Daylight Time (Western US) - 25 Apr 2014


I'm wondering if she was on a flight earlier in the day since there were several Air Canada flights from Toronto to Calgary that would have arrived much earlier than this. There were several Westjet flights too, but I assume they are still flying Air Canada as much as possible this season. Perhaps they were provided flights to let the production staff to arrive and get set up, film intros, etc. before the teams show up.

There was also an interesting tweet about a sighting in Melbourne, Australia but I knew TAR Canada couldn't have gotten to Australia this fast!

The thing is...this is a huge time difference from that first sighting this morning, if real. Is it possible this is cast and crew traveling to the start line location? Calgary is often a connection for Vancouver. What was the tweet from Melbourne? Remember last year...the crew were spotted in Lunenberg several days in advance? And I think they went there right from Q.C. while the teams went to Nunavut.

The time difference bothers me too, but Kelsey may have been busy after getting back to Calgary and didn't tweet about it for several hours after she arrived with the teams. I've asked her for more details, but she hasn't responded yet.

I think it's very possible they could be connecting to somewhere else, but if they were going to Vancouver, I think they would probably take a direct flight from Toronto. There were several that arrived earlier than the tweet suggests. You may be right about the starting line not being in Toronto and this is a flight delivering them to the starting line. I hadn't thought of that.

Anyway, here's the tweet from Australia. It doesn't sound like production staff. I think it's likely a local race unless TAR Vietnam or one of the other TAR Asia versions is filming.

Amazing Race Canada filming at #YYC! Yea, you check that map... @ Calgary International Airport (YYC) http://instagram.com/p/nRYJb5oo7a/ 4:29 PM - 26 Apr 2014

Spooner and Mikkelson were on the CDN Womens Olympic hockey team so they were very identifiable. There are more tweets coming in and I am trying to grab the pics too. So it was a Calgary start today?

Just acting on a hunch and putting it out there...I thought where in Calgary could they have started from?  Apparently there was a spontaneous low level helicopter flight approved over The Calgary Olympic Park (Winter 1988).

Ward Sutherland ‏@Ward4Ward1 15h
FYI, City of Calgary approved for a low level helicopter fly over Canada Olympic Park on April 26 to promote film #yyc 7:00 AM - 26 Apr 2014

....apparently the weather was bad there

There was also this:

Brendan Henry ‏@Ladon
Just headed to the Calgary Olympic Park to get a tour, got rudely pushed into an elevator. Not welcome? Not open? @WinSportCanada
    1:31 PM - 26 Apr 2014

I will dig around some more.

@LeafsfanRFF one group went into the Vancouver info center. They could be staying in YVR???

Looks like Vancouver is leg 1

@LeafsfanRFF We believe the shuttle was taking them to route info/some destination in Vancouver - perhaps they were heading to hotel 4 night

Bonita Perko ‏@bonesnos  now
@LeafsfanRFF definitely 4 teams perhaps a 5th, but it was hard to tell if they were contestants or with the crew. @AmazingRaceCDA
