Recommended Posts

some of the flying ships are from Valhalla / Skyline / Wildcat / Transwest / Eclipes / Canadian

 

those are just the ones ive heard in the last couple hours last night

 

Thank you, PedalJam.

 

re: Conair crew...

 

"The lone person on board, a male pilot, was able to escape out of the aircraft, Pedersen said. There were no reported injuries and he was taken to hospital for observation."

 

Good news the pilot is okay.

 

Wishing everyone very safe flights.

My last posted remarks were put there by someone who thought they were being funny, it was not and I was not able to remove them.

 

If a moderator reads this, please accept my apologies and remove the last remarks that insulted Heli-Bird.

 

Thanks

Thank you for attempting to raise my awareness. My comment to CJM91 was sincere and meant as a compliment. "It shows." As in, I can tell this person listens a lot in the consideration, respect and contribution evident in their posts. I value reading this persons thoughtful and considerate posts very much (as they are already aware of). My post was meant as nothing else.

Although HB's comment could have been taken either way, because of our brief PM history, I understood it to be a compliment and took it as such, much appreciated. And thanks to those who noted the (perceived) rudeness.

 

I'm sorry I didn't get on to this sooner - it could have cooled the flames.

 

HB: Regarding Hxs on the Kelowna Fire, there is the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre Inc. National Wildland Fire Situation Report. It is national in scope and doesn't give names but has heaps of current and backgound statistics.

tonights news had a home vid shot from lakeshore of the tanker crash

 

they replayed it 3 times and each time you can hear the cameraman or somebody

standing very close clearly say just before touchdown....

 

" oh s*it , they left the gear down "

 

I'm not saying that is what caused this , but somebody on shore didnt think what they saw

was a good thing

 

thnx to the two guys who got there quick and helped out

OK ...I'm tapping out of this forum.

I'm sick of the P/C touchy feely trend that has crept into this forum. Why do we accommodate these lurker pratts that have nothing to contribute except their skewed liberal views on a subject that they know half of nothing about! This is a forum FOR helicopter crew by people in aviation. I don't need to be second guessing everything I want to post for fear of offending . Aviators develope a pretty thick skin over the years and we should treat this forum for what it is. A forum for helicopter people!

Bye all...see you in the field.

Max

P.S. Nice work H.B

Thanks for the information & posting that link, CJM91. And also for decoding my previous, somewhat cryptic, post.

As a lurker myself, 2 things:

 

I usually know when to keep my yap shut

 

I would be very sad to see guys like Max and Splitty leave this place.

Sirlansalot- So which fires whould you have commited resources to, the two that had the chance to burn a couple of thousand homes and businesses or the one up on the top of the bench in the middle of no where affecting very few people?

 

 

Well 212wrench if you want to start it? They had more than enough resources. I didn't say pull anything off the other fires and jeprodize anyone or anything. I just figured with the shear amount of resource available, they could of easily put more on. The only show in the country is Kelowna. Alberta is blue....do you know what that means...absolutly nothing going on. And If I am not mistaken, the day that fire blew up, came the evacuation notices for homes along the lake shore, so I guess those homes are different than the other homes? What ever 212. :down:
