Interested in Yukon Flying History?
Check out Bob Camerons excellent new book; "Yukon Wings", it is the deffinitive work on flying up here from 1920 to 1970. It is full of rare and interesting photos, facts, and anecdotes too. Hopefully he will follow it with a work covering 1970 to now?
Make sure you check out the excellent story about flying helicopters in Northern Yukon in 1962 written by Kit Cain who brings alive the experience of mosquitos, engine failures, and isolation in the pioneering days of Northern aviation. Look at our "History" page for the links.
