Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy I had a chance to show some out of town visitors through the BC Aviation Museum at YYJ this past weekend.

Quite a busy place on a very nice CAVU day. Finished off with lunch and a cold beverage at Mary's across the road which brought back fond memories of our VIVA re union years ago. Very Happy Very Happy

Can you believe this aircraft started out life as a Beech 18???



Beautifully restored Vickers Viscount.

May she rest in Peace throughout Eternity. That is our Hope to be sure.
Salt Spring Island (SSI) is a good place for eternal resting as it has a rich history preserved and promoted by dedicated individuals.
Of course SSI reminds us of our July 15, 2014 trip there with Jon Patch
Jon and I were photographing Ganges for the scenery he was working on for FSX and P3D
I flew that very FSX-SE scenery yesterday after d/l it from FTX/Orbx where it is offered as CAX6 FREEware as a trubute to Jon, et al.
Jon Patch died February 22, 2015. Nice fella. Hard worker.
Our regrets to you and Michelle and family regarding this sad event
Bill
N.B. Here's one UNRELATED PHOTO we took that day.
