I'm hoping for a nice steady stream of photos as the season starts when the ice goes out!! Would be neat to see where everyone is and what they're upto. Here are a couple from the wet coast over the last two weeks. You'll see some from MB and NWO from me near the end of the month..

Hasn't been a lot of activity in this thread in a bit. Maybe I can get the ball rolling again.

This is still my favorite thread of any forum. Makes me want to pour myself a cup of shit coffee and stand out on a dock at 0500 to watch the sunrise.

This is such a great site. The pictures are awesome. Brings back alot of great memories. This may seem crazy but it makes me feel lucky that I had the opportunity to gain the experience of flying in the north and the bush. Some of the best flying time.

So here are a few from awhile back..

Something a little different for you.

I dislike two crew ops, and generally avoid them, but I could get used to "two machine" ops... ;-)
