at Lougheed Island Airport,
This strip was a mess the last time I saw it...early breakup that year. Came out in a ski mod twin otter, with the mud flying all over the sides of the plane...
Back earlier, in that winter, it was fine...we used an Electra and had Herc's in all the time...we drilled a single hole and left. (dry)...
Enjoyed an afternoon tea with Dr. Kent from BP London one day while there...he was fog'ed out of his strip and stopped by to wait it out. This was the "Head Knocker" of BP Oil's Geology Dept, found oil all over the world...very interesting guy to pass some time with...
