  4. My most sincere Condolences to Waynes family, his Co-workers and Friends. I had the privilege of meeting Wayne in the early 80's when he was with Midwest, skiing in Golden. A true gentleman!

  7. I first met Dave when I was assigned to the OKanagan Chetwynd Base as an Engineer ( about 1977). Terry Mooney was away on Vaction. I returned to Chetwynd to fly in 79. Dave was the ultimate mentor and I learned a lot from his experience and wisdom. To Dave's family and friends, I offer my most sincere condolences to this great loss. The industry has lost a great one ! I broke out my oldest Scotch in memory of you Dave, and as a true Scot, you know how deep that cuts ! To you CAP ! Don
  8. Tom, Congrats ! It's nice to see a Base guy to finally get some recognition that you deserve !
  9. Bravo Walter, the best way to quell the inevitable ugly rumor mill is with ..... the facts ! I wish that more companies had the foresight and guts to post as you did. I sincerely hope that everyone involved has a speedy recovery.
  10. Thanks Guys, but any praise over this incident should be directed to others.... The Comox Buffalo crew who gave us a pinpoint map location to search, which they determined from an IFR altitude of 16,000 overhead that afternoon. Well done gents ! The Two SAR Techs, Bruno and Scott who ran down through the bush and waded down the creek to reach the wreckage, extricated Kate, and carried her up the 200 meters to the waiting helicopter. The Golden SAR crews who volunteer to help all persons who are in need in the Golden area, regardles of the personal hardships they may encounter.
