Some historic pictures... As most know, I work for Redding Air Service in California. The company was started by Burt Train in 1957. Unfortunately he passed back in 2005, but his company lives on. The company primarily is involved in the utility industry, and I was recently forwarded a photo from the USFS of Burt doing some of the first trials for bucket work. The Tail # is N988B, this number has since been transfered to one of our L4's.



Here are a bunch of pictures from the company history---some may recognise one of the landing spots---I recently posted a picture of me approaching the same spot in one of our L4's.























This is our hangar which is still there---we have added onto it though:







More to follow...

Those are some really neat photos Gordy. A real blast from the past, and great scenery.

Not all Bond crews live in the cabins - those lucky enough to fly the lighthouse task (admittedly BAS, but still Bond) usually get the luxury of Rooms 31 or (if particularly fortunate) 32 at the front of the hotel.

Some pics from recent months here in Aus.

Powerline inspections.




Recent flooding in Queensland. An area equivalent to the size of England was under water!
