Oh yeah. This is just a small sample. I'm going to post them later in the proper location, as time allows.

I also passed on the addresses of this forum and the Seawings website to the president of FARS ( Fairview Aircraft Restoration Society )

Chris,

You beauty..! I knew it...!

Can I trouble you to DropBox me the original large size images and I will create a walk-round gallery on the main SEAWINGS site with your name on it.

And I will love you Big Time......

You have to love the Edmonton summer weekend - not a single person in either short sleeves or shorts! Most wearing foul weather gear of some sort!
