Hey Iceman...Max would have been 80 in 98...probably not doing much flying.

Unless I missed it; nobody brought up the O'Connor Brothers and Aero Arctic out of Yellowknife.

I met Bob's daughter (who was a flight attendant for First Air) on a flight to Gjoa Haven back in 2011; she told me some great stories about her late father, and uncle when they were running the company.

Now on the subject of how Canadian got started...well this may be way off base but who was Don Plant and how did he fit in to the Heli business...I thought he was the one trying to buy up all the companies...or maybe he was Dobbin's competition...

The Gary you refer to as the Ops Manager at Northstar; that won't have been Gary Smith?

Did they have  a few Astars, and did a couple of guys called John Lesque and Rejean Charlebois happen to fly for them?
