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 #71

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

I maintain a complete database, only a small part of it is on this website, I usually wait for a picture before adding data.

Can you help with any additonal snaps? Be part of the search team!

Thanks again to Ian Macintosh for the stats.

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 free e-book", now has some 4,343 pages and at least 18,606 or so different images!!

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

Over 14,367 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.

Special thanks to Jacques Guillem, Adrian M. Balch, John Mounce, Ian M. Macdonald, Dirk Septer, and many others.
