Thought I would share some photos with all of you. I've posted a number of photos in my gallery that I recieved via e-mail from my cousin. He's in Comox B.C. right now training on the Cormorant helicopter for S&R. He'll be finished up middle of May and then come July is moving to Trenton, which will be a bonus for us as we don't see as much of him and his family as we'd like.

Anyways, the photos. There are some of the cormorant, but the others are from Tuesday. He got to fly during a practice session with the Snowbirds. I can't wait to see him so I can smack him in the head, lucky turd. Just wanted to share them with all of you.....Enjoy.


OOPS, here's the link to my gallery to make it easier....

Give him one for me, too! Great shots! I'm almost wetting myself with envy.

I'd probably fork over a thousand bucks (which I don't have) for a ride like that.

Awesome pics! I got a call from my Aunt and uncle who live in Courtney (right beside Comox) saying that everyday they were getting an airshow from the snowbirds as the practice. My uncle works at the base too, he runs the para-rescue school there.

Don't know where they came from or where they were going but at about 7:30 this morning 4 of them popped over the hill and right over me at about 1500 feet (nice tight formation) heading to the Kelowna airport. It is always nice to see them. They usually put on a show close to here each year and frequently use Kelowna as a fuel stop.
