Celebrating thirty-one years of research.

This website is a lasting tribute to the men and women, past and present, who have had anything to do with this fine aircraft.

Thanks for visiting and supporting the website.

If this is your first landing here, welcome on board.

Too much fun to miss! - Check out the gallery of our most recent, and links to many earlier fine banners. Good for the soul.

Many items shown here did not always appear in the individual aircraft pages - hundreds of larger images!!

Don't forget to visit the last Banner Archives page #54

Approximate number of DHC-2 images in database (30 November 2019) Thanks again to Ian Macintosh for the accurate stats.
13,180

Tell me now, what book do you have that adds several images/pages to itself each and every day?

CAUTION: This website, really a "giant e-book", now has some 4,280 pages and at least 17,089 or so different images!! (Not counting my daily "Toonies").

Over 13,369 of Beaver aircraft (my running tally - which is anything containing parts of a Beaver! - Hence different from Ian's Monthly Tally).

Even includes some videos and slide shows. WARNING: Could be very addictve.

My sincere thanks to my hard working research collegues, Ian S. Macintosh, Ian M. Macdonald and Erik Johannesson.
