Great story. They certainly look like brothers, even when one is about a foot taller. The seat adjustment on cars growing up probably got a lot of use.

Great story
Last month I flew Aegean Airlines from Rome to Athens and it was the Captain's retirement flight and he had his son as First Officer. The cabin PA announcement from the Capt and Son was epic. Not many dry eyes

These retirement flights always bring up some emotion as it always is the end of an era. Would just like to wish this Captain all the best for his retirement.

Fantastic way to end a career. Really touching. Time to let the “kids” take over. Enjoy your time chilling with your family now Capt Paul.

I'll bet that Mr Albers'll be flying something! I'm 83 and as long as the medical holds-up, I'll keep my little 172 RG happy; great little business plane. BTW I've found out, following my old engineering buddies, that retirement kills people. Maybe Mr Albers'll want to buy ole C-GPKA if I'm forced back to driving, hey?! Jim Van Doren

Did anybody else catch the "forty years and five months" of flying for Air Canada? So how old is he?

Canada used to ape the US and force pilots to retire at 60. An internet search shows that this policy was challenged - successfully - in court about ten years ago. So far as I can tell, there is no longer a mandatory retirement age for pilots there. Apparently, they can limit the responsibilities for someone over 65, though I couldn't find any specifics.

So did AC randomly assign the crew, or did they take the time to realize it was his last flight and his brother could serve as FO? I'm hoping that AC did the latter.

Retirement flights always deserve more attention than others, so I have no doubt that this was planned
