North Shore - Your photos are excellent.
Otter's with the piston engine sure look nice.

Those things have almost enough gross to carry enough spares and mechanics to keep them flying.

Pie, wow, I can't believe how much Invermere has expanded since I started my flight training there!! There were about 3 hangars and 2 trailers (1 for the office and 1 for the classroom) in my time there.

I love this thread!

Yep, we've got a 'new' hangar and the office has been a real building for well over ten years. Unfortunately most of the development is the coffee roasting place which has encroached on the airport.

A few other ones. I don't often get interesting or unusual aircraft in here and don't often go to too many other fields, so my aviation related photography is fairly lacking.

This is what it usually looks like here. How many Cessnas can you count?

I'g go with four, with NO Skymaster in the middle, which would make it a little more difficult to count! :D

If there is only 4 the first two might have training wheels.

You got me Beef, never thought of counting the wheels!

Nevertheless, everybody knows the best way to count a herd of cows: count the legs and divide by four.

I owe you a burger!

If you disregard the tail at extreme right, it is 5. The 152 is a little hard to see, but you can see the designation through the one of the windows. :D

You know how if you scratch a dog in just the right spot he goats Elvis leg? That might have happened when you said "burger".

We are 30 views short of 250,000

I should offer a prize to the 250,000th visitor, but I don't know what yet...

Any suggestion?

What a great picture. I think I have seen that one before ... maybe we've brushed shoulders in the past. I see your 6 502's and I will try to double down in the next few weeks. I start my drive out to MB tomorrow for the spray season.

Maybe, if you look like your avatar (looks like most AG pilots I've met) I've either worked with you or your brother :mrgreen:
