Memorializing DHC-2 Beaver CF-OBS

CF-OBS demonstrating aerial firefighting techniques

I am a hobby aircraft photographer in the Barrie area. I would like to submit these 8 of my favourite photographs that I took of CF-OBS for the 75th Anniversary of the Beaver!

Some of these photos were taken on the Saturday, at the Muskoka International Airshow and the water photos were taken at Lake St John the same weekend.
I had talked to OBS pilot Neil Ayers after the Saturday after his show performance, and he offered if I wanted to come to Lake St. John where OBS was parked. He would do a few water pick up and drops close to me when he was warming OBS up before the show. I took him up on his generous offer and got some amazing shots!
