Canadian Ramblings 5 into the Cariboo

Post by LondonEye » Sat Feb 01, 2020 8:11 pm

A return of the Canadian journeys. What can be seen over the fence, (no official viewing areas) and pictures often just for the record, of the more unusual aircraft types.
This was on a holiday back in September 2010. It is travelling North of Vancouver, mainly on highway 97 through the Cariboo. Excellent scenery. All airfields easily found.
Surprising that several aircraft carried the old CF- prefix.

100 Mile House

Small airfield with seven logged. Interest – Spectrum Beaver and a Quad City Challenger.

108 Mile Ranch

Situated close to a Heritage Village – old dwellings etc. Eight aircraft logged, interest being a Bell 205 and a Bell 212.

Not a specific aviation holiday, but surprising what you can see (with help of patient wife !).
Hope of interest, and possibly help anyone going touring.
Several more images on FlickR.

Fine set there Pete. Nice to see Canada for a change and also to put "faces to names" as it were. Seen types listed in databases but never bothered to look up what they look like. Glas=d you had a good time and, like me, have an understanding wife - hope mine is as accommodating for Europe this summer :lol:
