CYKZ Buttonville tower's last transmission, farewell message
« on: January 03, 2019, 02:39:48 PM »
NAV Canada had decided to close Toronto Buttonville Airport Tower and ATC service will no longer be available.  It will be reverting to a Mandatory Frequency (MF) airport.  METAR service was also ceased at 0400 Jan 3 2019 (Local)

Last METAR for CYKZ: 
CYKZ 030900Z 25004KT 15SM SCT040 M03/M05 A2985 RMK SC3 LAST STFD OBS FAREWELL SLP118

The attached audio file recorded what CYKZ Buttonville tower controller said for its final closing/farewell remarks at 17:00 Jan 2 2019 (local time), and a few transmission preceding it

Too bad the liveatc feed for CYKZ is down during this time, the transmission was recorded it on my scanner.    The actual of the recording is about 5 min but I have removed the silence

Thanks for all the Buttonville controller for all the years of service guiding planes (and me as a pilot) safety around CYKZ !
