PHOTOS FROM BUILDERS
Bob Cameron of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, sent in these photos of his pair of Northern Airways/Whitehorse Flying Services Fairchild models. Whiskey Jack decals, and floats from Khee-Kha and Matchbox, combined with craftsmanship and clever photography, made quite a display out of this pair. CF-BXF is the FC-2W2 she appears to be here, but CF-BXF is called an F.71C; perhaps a technicality due to the horsepower of the engine...


Eric Hagedorn of British Columbia, Canada sent these photos of his Khee-Kha Fairchild, skillfully converted to a Fairchild 71C, sporting scratchbuilt skis and decals from Whiskey Jack Decals:

NC142H "Pribilof" was used in the Alaskan bush by a fur smuggler and a missionary during its career. Percy Hubbard was flying it for Service Airways of Fairbanks when wrecked while searching for a missing fellow aviator in 1935:
