I have pics of their ships in Ft Smith...1979...one of the Alouettes was upside down in a swamp...and the Gazelle and I had a close encounter in the smoke over the airport!

GOCA was the gazelle... I had a ride down the river and we either hit or were **** close to Vne...

I was at Great Lakes Helicopters(GLH) from 74-78, we operated 2 Gazelles (C-GDUG - light/dark orange was one, can't recall the other registration was red/white).  Dave Dunstan was our Aerospatiale rep - great guy.   Not the same GLH in Cambridge, Ont.  My time at Kenting/Klondike we had 2 Alouette III's.   

Wasn't any EuroCopters at Klondike when I was there in 1974...Bell and Hillers and a couple of Sikorsky S-58...must have just missed you buddy!

Anyone still around from the Bullock Wings & Rotors or the early days of Alouette II operations use at James Bay?

I remember Gaspar and Ian Powick were Aerospatiale sales reps in the 1970s and early 1980s. Ian has passed away.

Anyone know where Gaspar might be ... or Dave Dunstad?
