"According to recognized aerodynamic laws, the bumblebee cannot fly because of the shape & weight of its body in relation to total wing area. The bumblebee does not know this, so it flies anyway"
I took this photo of Williston Lake Air Services DC-3 in CYZY Mackenzie, BC. circa 1999. I flew this a/c for 6 months before a permanent layoff that Christmas due to slowdown in resource logging industry. It was a Bradley Air Services a/c that I believe spent some time based in CYRB Resolute Bay, NWT.
1997, on a cargo to an arctic location from our northern base Inuvik.
A empty flight northbound with 'totes' from Vancouver to Sandspit was filled with 'Goeducks' for the return flight home. Once we landed back in Vancouver the seafood company would meet us on the ramp, pick up the goods, then to their operation centre for processing. Then international bound in a large jet the same day to Asia. Within 24 hours this seafood would be at dinner tables 8000 miles away! Wow...
June 14, 1997. At altitude flying the high arctic . This is where the sea ice meets the open water. It is quite a sight to behold.
Loading empty fuel drums at Qikiqtarquaq bound for Iqaluit, NT. Lots of help with loading!
