Blue skies for ‘All About Flight’ day

P 5 B air cadets pic 1Members of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, 858 Skookumchuk Squadron (Sunshine Coast) pose at their 2nd annual “All About Flight” open house at Sechelt Airport on Saturday, Sept. 23. They showcased their skills in shelter and fire building, first aid and compassing. There were draws for a donated remote-control plane and a helicopter flight. BCIT representatives were on site to speak about their aviation programs.  And there was a living history moment when Bruce Dignem flew into the airport in his CF-DPG – Fleet 80 (Canuck) – which was the first plane to land at Sechelt Airport almost 60 years ago to the day – October 1, 1957.
