Nunavut is a Territory and not a province, it's the largest Territory / Province in Canada with the smallest population - 25,000 - just the way I like it.

We are having a heat wave here today it's only -28C everyone is complaining it's too warm.
So how's the RC flying up there? Not some place I'd want to live. Winter is cold enough down here.

I did fly a bit when I first came up but it became a real pain. The only place to really fly is the Airport and it is all gravel ( very dusty ) and I attracted toooo much attention, also had to drag everything on an ATV. I take 3 months off a year and spend it in Nova Scotia and fly, fly, fly.

The cold weather is the least of your problems up here. Here are some pics of the Airbus in Iqaluit yesterday.

My friend from the German F3A team (Bernd Berschorner) worked on the design team for the flooring of the A380...he said that at one time there were 8000 engineers working on this plane, and there will be roughly 800 continuing to work on it after its in full production

Can you imagine the coordination for something like that
