Re: Snowbird crash in CYKA

Aaaahhhhh... Grasshoppers... Let's put it this way: is there anybody here who would NOT fly the Tutor in it's present configuration given that it would be at no cost to you: Checkout, maintenance, fuel, everything paid for. All you have to due is get current and fly. I'd be first in line; formation...

Re: Flying into Fairmont hot springs airport

What do the VFR/IFR pubs say? Google maps shows a lot of runway despite the displaced threshold on 33. I`ve seen exec jets parked there when driving by. Give them a call.

Re: Snowbird 5 Ejected in Atlanta

In my opinion the snow birds are out dated and the equipement is boring and outdated as well. Either shut them down or update them. They seem to have taken on this mystical Canadian thing like Tim Hortons. How many social media generation people actually know who Tim Horton was. A successful ejecti...

Re: WOW Air collapses

Some hotels require a credit card for incidentals (room service, movies & internet access) and some don't. Depends on the contract with the hotel. You should never provide a credit card to hotels for incidentals on layover. When C3 and Royal went down, and crews were stranded for several days befor...

Re: Researching grandfather's - RAF / RCAF - how/where

" The aircraft could be a Fairchild C-119 Boxcar or Fairchild C-82 Packet."

Chris......googled 426 Sqn and somewhere I thought I read "North Star " for that airlift. C-119 Boxcar was later in their history.

Re: Aerial Spraying

They spray after dark because the air is more stable and the thermals caused by the sun heating the earth are calmed down. Also the winds generally die down after dark, chemical drift is a very serious concern when applying them from an aircraft. By the way of all the jobs in aviation I had aerial ...
