It was a Westjet flight from Toronto to Edmonton.

You could also take a gander at emporis for some new aerials of some downtown Toronto buildings ... closer than 38k.

I saw Winnipeg from the air while flying from Edmonton to Toronto on a red-eye Air Canada flight back on May 29. It looke a lot like what Spill posted.

I also managed to see yet another city from the air - Thunder Bay.

I got bored and tried to match up the plane's angle with GoogleEarth. Then I made this nifty "day to night" animation haha



I think i did a pretty good job matching up the streets

On an AC flight last week from Toronto to Vancouver, I managed to see Winnipeg from the air again, this time in broad daylight!
