Aviation Artist Neil Aird researches the
de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver
Tracking Beavers worldwide! I wish I had special tracking software for doing this, but alas, it's just a slow, pleasant slog.
News comes in from correspondents around the globe daily, without your eagle eyes in the field, I would surely miss some DHC-2 activity.
Digital photographs are welcome, slides and photographs require more work for me with my imaging software Adobe Photoshop CS5. I can scan and return the same day if you are willing to part with rare images from your collection. Many correspondents do this already! By doing this I can expand the website for us all to enjoy.
Please keep your cameras handy, remember what is a daily scene for you is a delight for others, and history tomorrow! Even if you are on a hunting or fishing trip, take a snap of the Beaver that took you there.
The very best Aviation Journal !
