Uncertainty over Banff and Jasper airstrips resolved
COPA
Long awaited amendments to the National Parks Aircraft Access Regulations were Gazetted (came into law) on February 13, meaning Banff and Jasper continue to be available for emergency/diversionary use and Jasper is now available for non-commercial recreational use. This is the end of a very long process which began in 1987 when Parks decided to delist the airstrips. The process accelerated after the Aircraft Access Regulations were amended in 1997 and charges were subsequently filed against area pilots for flying into Banff.

In praise of our airport
West Island Gazette via National Post
Now and then, West Islanders are reminded that we live next to an airport. It might be while we are in our backyards. Or maybe we can even hear it through a closed window. A not unpleasant sound if it only happens once and a while. Most flights seem to come in over the lake or over the industrial parks of St. Laurent. And most take off over Sources Blvd. But if you do not live in these flight paths, you can easily forget how close it is.

British Spitfire hunter vows to keep digging in Myanmar despite loss of main sponsor
Vancouver Sun
A British aviation enthusiast searching for scores of World War II-era Spitfire fighter planes he believes are buried in Myanmar said Tuesday he will continue his quest even though his main sponsor has backed out. David Cundall told reporters that he is confident of enough funding to continue his search despite the withdrawal of the Belarusian video gaming company Wargaming.net. The company said last Friday it believes the planes don't really exist and descriptions of their burial by Allied forces as the war drew to a close nearly 70 years ago are a myth.
