My image on the tail of an airplane!

As some of you may know, I am a pilot at First Air, going on just over 20 years now. The company had an employee contest for new images for the Tails of the ATR 42-500 coming on line. This past November I was notified that 1 of my 3 submissions was chosen for this ATR. For the last few months I have been patiently waiting for the airplane to be finished with it’s heavy maintenance checks and for the large sticker with my image to be installed.

If you happen to have a 2016 Nunavut Calendar, the Tail image is from January’s Photograph.

This particular ATR 42-500 is the first of a series to fly the line at First Air. It is also the first ATR 42-500 to be operated in Canada. It was just brought to Yellowknife to start service about a week ago. I certainly do hope it makes its way out East to Iqaluit one day. It would be pretty amazing for me to fly this airplane around the Eastern Arctic.

Thank you to fellow photographer Mark Taylor for letting me use his photograph of this ATR 42-500, showing my tail image.
