Gentlemen,

 

I have 2 of the "BOW Job" pins, if anyone would like one, you can submit me an offer, and I may part with them. I never actually worked for Bow, but flew many of their C-FBH_ series of A/C at Okanagan.

 

I also have several new and Original OKanagan Hats, but your bid will have to be high ! :D :up:

But, who can remember how Sealand came about? What was the original name of the company they bought and what machines did they have?? Hint..... The original company was from Winnipeg and wasn't Midwest or Aerotrades....

IT WAS a little mom and pop company and they ended up eating the whale (or the bird if you prefer).

Somewhere, in a box, I have a " Bow Job" t-Shirt sent to me by Geoff Palmer ( RIP ) .

Never worn - never to be sold.

I spent a magical hour in the Bow Hangar in 77 - they had a Bull Dog as a hangar pet - belonged to the chief eng I recall - the helicopters had names - a 47 G3B2 called 10,000 + great stuff.

Yup, you win GOV. That was the reg on the 206 model he had too. I changed the tail rotor on his J2 for him in YTH way back when, but can't remember the reg on it.......... No only that, can't remember the pilots name either, on the tip of my tongue, but....... Old age is a b 1 tch!

 

And time goes on, amazing how it went!

Gerry MacArthur operated GEM Air with a 206 from his base on the Red River north of Winnipeg. He sold his license to the big guy from the East probably 1975 or thereabouts.
