Shirley might have bought it after Okie took control of Dom-Peg in 1975. The last ime I worked on it was in King City that year. Dom-Peg's other two were on a contract in Zaire.

:rolleyes: Yep, this brings back some fond memories!! Karl Ziehe and Wayne Eng flew the Shirley Helicopters Gazelle C-FTCS (among other machines - 1979 / 80) out of Whitehorse. Karl was the Engineer / Pilot at the base with Big John Flesher as the Base Manager. I had the privilege of "apprenticing" under Karl on TCS when I first started in this industry. I truly enjoyed that machine!
