Celebrating thirty-five 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 - close to two thousand larger images!!

Don't forget to visit the current Banner Archives page #70

You can also check out the Calendars Retrospective page for lots more!

Thanks again to Ian Macintosh for the stats.

14,248

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 4,341 pages and at least 18,534 or so different images!!

(Not counting the hundreds of my daily "Toonies").

Over 14,307 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 and large PDF presentations. WARNING: Could be very addictve.

My sincere thanks to my hard working research collegue, Ian S. Macintosh.

Thanks also to friends  Jacques Guillem, Adrian M. Balch and Ian M. Macdonald.
