When a chopper flies over Baldy, I drop what I am doing and go out on the deck with a camera. There is a maintenance facility in Oliver, and more than one pilot training school in the area. A while back, one landed briefly on Crit Lake.
Beautiful day to fly today - appears to be the Penticton based helicopter that I had a ride in a few years ago. I didn't go down below to see who and what, but there were telecommunication guys here recently, so likely parts and/or tools for the summit in the net.
This fellow also flies for forest fires in the summer so we saw a lot of him in the Oliver area last year.
