Photo Comment

Two of these PT-6 engined, homebuilt campers with wings from Quebec stopped in at Vernon on their cross-country camping/flying trip. Unfortunately, the one in the background (C-GCTB) suffered a hard glassy water landing on Azure Lake and sunk. C-GROS was there to recover the two on board who escaped serious injury.
