Here is a shot taken on April 25th 2011 of the flooding south of Winnipeg. You can see how the road heading SW essentially disappears into the water.
Flooding in Manitoba.
New airplane smell.
Up until my current job I have only flown older airplanes. At the age of 26 I flew a deHavilland Beaver that was manufactured in the 1940s and was 52 years old -- twice my age. The deHavilland Beavers and Otters I flew were from the 40's, 50's and 60's and the Twin Otters spanned the 60's, 70's and 80's. Today I am fortunate to be flying new airplanes and, in some cases, brand new airplanes. Today I flew an airplane with only 66 landings on it -- brand new! It smelled just like a new car and, for $50 million, one might expect that new car smell. These aircraft fly in the vicinity of 3,000 hours a year so this aircraft had only been online for a couple weeks.
Me. If you know billseye.ca then you know who I am.
