Smile MBA Do228's @ Summit Air, Yellowknife, NWT Canada

Well, well, well! When one walks into a house or an office and sees a framed picture of something from his own country on the same wall as the fishing or hunting trophy, that picture must mean something to the person that owns the place.

As I was on my way to board a Summit Air downier 228 plane from Yellowknife to Windy Lake Camp, Nunavut, two framed pictures on the wall caught my eye. The pictures were of two MBAs Do228 planes landing at some airstrip in the highlands of PNG. As I stood there looking at the pictures, the General Manager of Summit Air, Jamie Tait walked towards me and asked if I knew where the pictures were from. I smiled back saying that it was taken in my country,Papua New Guinea. He was surprised to see that someone from Papua New Guinea there in Arctic Canada.

Jamie mentioned to me that his company recently bought 6 MBA Do228s planes from PNG and I will be traveling in one of them to my place of work.

It was quite interesting. These planes were previously flying in the tropics for quite sometime and now doing more flying in Arctic Canada. Sitting in the plane reminded of me flying in the highlands of PNG. The only difference was that I was in my full winter parkers, rated for -70 C.

The last picture shows Windy Lake camp during winter.
