Now there's a name I haven't heard since the 70's..... Howard Hawley aka Huff 'n Puff. Last time I saw him was at Lambs on -3's.

Great old pics of BMW. Do you have any info on the pics other than the pilot Tom Laurie?

BMW was written off while landing on skis at Bigstone Lake MB on March 12, 1965. On short final the left hand flap popped up. The aircraft rolled to the left and struck the ice in a left wing low nose down attitude. Pilot Howard Hawley was seriously injured.

Useable parts and pieces were recovered and taken to Northland's base at Netley MB.

Thanks AP. I was very fortunate to be her son! If I find more details of the flight, I will post them.

It looks like they did not shut down for passenger loading. Safety, comfort, schedule.....hmmmm, priorities! They were different times indeed.

Thank you for the great photos of the Spartan aircraft.
My farthers first job coming from the Coal Branch was working on these aircraft and others of Spartans until he transfered to the Helicopter
division which he stayed with to the Kenting days.
He talked many times of his days of Spartan's P38, Mosy, Lancaster and Ansens,
Lots of raw fingers sanding on wood repairs.
Sadly he passed in March he would of loved to see those slides.
do you have any more of Spartans a/c?
Sorry for the drift on the Barkley,
I played as a kid in the Barkley and the other old A/C hanging around when I was a hangar rat.

Don't give up on those old slides yet Barney, a little post processing can sometimes do wonders - lo and behold, the hangar doors are actually green...

Trying to track down user 'Dibbley' to seek permission from him to publish one of his photos of Barkley-Grow CF-BTX behind Coulson's hangar at Port Alberni in the 1990s for an upcoming article in Propliner magazine. I was in touch with Jaeson Cardiff of the splendid Barkley-Grow Facebook page who recommended this site. Dibbley doesn't seem to have been active on the forums since 2014, but hope someone may know how to contact him. Many thanks!

Off topic, but if anyone is interested in the story of Spartan Air Services there's a book on the subject. Spartan, Seven Letters That Spanned The Globe, by Norm Avery. The book is seven years old, so it may be out of print. Larry Milberry at CanAv Books could probably rustle up a copy or two.

The video that Blakey posted earlier with the Barkley Grow on floats being identified by the narrator, is actually a beech 18. The Barkley Grow rudders have a fin sticking out of them horizontally and the beech has no fin sticking out of the rudder. Also the shape of the nose is different along with the shape of the nacelles.

Good catch. Poster "Beech 18" pointed that out to me in a PM.
