My dad called my house befor I left for school today, He took a 212 off its skids, then put it down on high gear with a belly-tank in westbank at alpine, he also scored me a hat :up: He also said it was marked with some forestry companies name on the side

That 212 you are referring to is headed south of the border.

It isnt just on high gear, its sitting on the highest gear I have ever seen in my life.

when I stand beside it the floor is at my neck.

Its so high I think you need a seperate endorsement on it, Dam.

I'll try and get a picture of it.

 

Hey 407D keep up the good work out there.

Firehawk, get me a picture of that High gear, if you don't post it, email me direct. Is it actually a "forest company" or a Kachina aircraft?

 

Are you going to be around on May 28th...walk over for a beer if so ! We'll have a cooler full, and even promise not to make you work either :up:

407d I'll get a picture tomorrow for you, I should be around on the 28th,

I still have a few weeks off to try and make my lawn grow, I'll try and make it over.

As for the high gear 212, I didnt notice what was on the side, my guess is yes it is a Kachina ship.

####, I never didnt get to even stand beside a frontier 205, but from a distance they did look high, I was a 100hr wander when I first saw one from the other side of the fence wishing I could fly one.

They are probably the same type of gear.

Firehawk? are you in kelowna? did you get to meet my dad?, He was the crane operator

 

I got some pics, I will try and post them, when its up on the skids the fuselage is say almost 4 i would even go as far as to say 5 feet off the ground, keep in mind it was in line to have a belly tank put on

Hey Don if I land my OLD 204B at Golden can I come over for a Cold One? I am in Ft McMurray sitting right now but did go a couple of small fires. You have to beat the Ducks there because if they beat you, you sit and watch the air show. Well buddy I am going look at some more pics of my brand new Grandson. Wish I was in OZ to hold him but in November he will be here and I will not put the little guy down and I will even change poooooop pants just to beable to have him home for a month.

You take care buddy and hope to see you this summer.

Ken :D
