0106.0003: Twin Engine Float Plane
Float plane - twin engine Dropping in to refuel at Moose Lake, Red Pass, BC. This is a very interesting picture, twin engine, twin tail, biplane with a flying boat hull. It has a RCAF ensignia on starboard lower wing. The steam/smoke in background appears to becoming from a steam locomotive. Looking at the narrow channel, sandy beach and proximity to train track the location seems to be upstream of the Red Pass community near the graveyard. It does look like smoke on the mountain at the upper starboard wingtip.
