    Default Aerial Survey TR (not FF)

    Wife's cousin generously offered to take us up for a flight over the Bob Marshall Wilderness; I said yes before he had a chance to reconsider.

    Got to the airport in Polson a few minutes early; didn't realize they had limo service available




    some of the locals






    our ride arrives right on time; vintage 1976 (ergo the red, white and blue paint job)




    2 prop ground strikes due to gopher holes (requiring complete engine tear down each time)




    After a quick brief on all the safety features (including survival gear in case of an emergency landing - where the hell he'd be able to put it down safely remained a mystery throughout the flight, as you'll see), we were off into the wild blue.

    360 over Kerr Dam








    South end of Flathead Lake and Polson
