Vertical Mag -----I believe that you'll find that Okanagan had a "whole passle" of folks who flew for 50 years (and the engineering fraternity was also well represented in that regard). One that 407 Driver worked for one time flew off of a Base on an airport where he had instructed RCAF Pilot Officers during WW2 and just kept "right on truckin' afterwards on the same airport. Downwash is another one who could add to that list also from the Okanagan folks, although he and I were "learners" when those folks were already well-experienced. The list is longer than one might think. Unfortunately, as Blackmac stated, the last 10 years or so have seen a lot leave us "for the Big Hangar"........and did so very quietly......maybe too quietly.

I would think it is not fair to talk about our elders without their knowledge !!


Jock's background is CAF he flew **** near everything they had..primarily fixed wing..Jock won the Tog Gun award once for some competion somewhere, I dont recall all the details, anyway I now call him "Pop Gun"


**** of a man..has the body of a 55 year old and the mind of a 21 year old!!!


Talked to him the other day, he said that he would like to do a few short relief stints "up north" if he was required.
