Okanagan added this Bell 214B Big Lifter when they acquired Bow Helicopters of Calgary in 1979, mainly for that company's IFR operation. The helicopter is current with McDermott Aviation as N217PJ at the time of uploading

Slinging 100 pound propane tanks in to Longworth Peak, a Forest Service Radio and lookout station east of Prince George, British Columbia. My first ride in a helicopter and I enjoyed it a lot. There would be many more flights for me over 35 years, but I will not forget this one. Back in those times the helicopters were equipped with HF radios and you can see the stinger antenna at the nose.
