Been a very long time since I last saw Jimmy....would have been in Edmonton in 1983 maybe...I had to fly a 206 from Norman Wells to Edmonton...met him in a hangar at the Industrial airport...last time before that was on the fire in Dryden 1974...Jim was flying a 205 that needed a new trany...I flew down to Dryden in a 337 suck and blow with my head jammed next to this trany and helped change it.

I was going to send you a message that you are getting old but I see that you remembered Jim Lewis. If I am not mistaken, he came to Klondike from Alpine when all they had was the little Bell 47 operation in Calgaary. I worked with Jim Lewis on KHQ and he was a tremendous person and pilot.

Take care Doug.
