Green Airways

#1 Post by Duffman » Sat Apr 19, 2014 12:58 am

Anyone know whats going on this year? Last year Adventure Air out of Lac Du Bonnet was running their Beaver and 185. Those two planes (EZU and YUY) have the registration canceled. The otters are still registered to Greens though, but last year they were just sitting at Selkirk.

I know Jack is older, but it would be a shame if that place shut down. When I was looking for my first job Jack put me in contact with the guy that hired me. Plus Johnny S runs ops there and he is a terrific guy.

Great picture AP!!!

Is that a V77 "Gullwing" in the middle?

PM me, you really ought to come by and visit your old "stomping" grounds!

Cheers,

The Gullwing is CF-BGN, a 1937 Stinson SR-9FM with the P&W Junior. The "FM" part designates "Freighter Marine'. Here is another pic after vandals played with it.

Will PM later. AP

I have no connection to the broker or seller just happy to see a beautiful aircraft restored.
