Re: The ugly duckling that is the Beech 1900

Assorted Beech 1900's taken mostly at Vancouver Intl. Airport ( CYVR / YVR ) They seem to be used quite a bit to fly into some of the remote areas of western / coastal British Columbia, Canada C-FCMB 1997 Beech 1900D https://farm1.staticflickr.com/810/40936838642_67d0554978_b.jpg C-FCMN 1997 Beech 1...

Not My Average Airbus

I'm old enough to remember the Lockheed Constellation and when I saw this 1997 Airbus A319-114 landing at YVR on Saturday because of the paint it instantly reminded me of watching those wonderful aircraft back in the 50's. My father would take me to YWG and together we would " spot " all day long. I...

Re: Canon 70D touch screen locking up and Q button greyed ou

I asked them to check the sensor for dust between now and Wednesday and clean if necessary (seemed sensible) . There's no better time to have it cleaned than when it's in their hands. If you take your gear in and out of different climates such as a warm house to a cooler humid climate and back in a...

Re: Canon 70D touch screen locking up and Q button greyed ou

Just a suggestion Andy. I was having a few issues with my 7D MkII whereby I couldn't make any setting changes. Despite trying almost everything I couldn't get it corrected until I thought of removing my battery. I shut the camera off, removed the battery and waited a few minutes, then reinstalled th...

Goodyear Blimp N4A

We were blessed in Abbotsford, B.C. to be paid a visit by one of the Goodyear Blimps due to one of their largest Canadian retailers having a 60th. anniversary. I managed to crack off a few shots between the rain showers on a couple of different days and when watching it fly it reminded me of a very ...

Hung out at the local airport because Conair is busy getting their water bomber fleet ready for this years fire season.

Re: Unknown ( need ID help )

Wow... you guys are good. I think you nailed it.
Funny I didn't pick up on the painting. I thought it was a digital conversion but now I notice the switch on the wall.
A lot of editors have those plug-ins installed.

Thanks for your help...........

I hope I've posted this in the correct area. If not please move it to the apprioate area. I don't have a lot to go on and as you see the photograph isn't very good. Someone had done some sort of editing and turned it into what he thought was a work of art. If you look at the engine closest to you yo...

Re: Water Bombers

Nice shots. It's lovely to see something a bit unusual on here. That's not a Cessna 180K Skywagon, it's an Air Tractor AT-802A. Probably a typo on the reg and it should be C-GBPY. Oz. Appreciate the feedback. C-GBPY is #98 so that isn't the one. The one I posted is #99 on the tail. They are quite b...

Water Bombers

It's fire season in British Columbia and Conair is doing their best to combat it. They are a large forest fire fighting company based in Abbotsford, B.C., Canada and have their aircraft spread across North America. They have kept some back to fight local fires as they are doing today. They return to...

Re: Two Beavers

Thanks folks. Glad you liked them. Canada owes a lot to the Beavers and Otters. Besides the canoe it's what opened the north and both are still coveted that's for sure. I never get tired of hearing something with a radial engine in it. Many have been converted to turbo power. Incredible power but it...
