MX Trainer Posted July 3, 2008 Report Share Posted July 3, 2008 Here is one for you B.C helicopter history buffs!!! In my Dads' stuff I came across a bunch of photos taken when he worked up the Alaska Highway. In them were 3 Bell 47 helicopter pictures taken from quite a distance with his old 120 film camera. This gave me a negative about 21/4 x 21/4 inches to scan - there was no print to be found but that is not unusual as he often developed his own film - and if he didn't think the shot was good enough he wouldn't print it. It looks like it is from a trip we made to Whitehorse in 1957 or possible 1958 as it was with the negatives from that trip so this dates it pretty well - but with old negatives one never knows for sure. The best I could do with my scanner gives me a registration that looks like CF-INX or possibly CF-IVX.I have tried to sharpen up the image to get the helicopter operators name off the tanks but can't get enough definition. The other shots don't show the registration or other markings. Anyone out there have an identity on the machine? Regards, MX Trainer Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
