My name is Marcel Dube Air Canada retiree. When reading NetLetter Issue 1210 June 25 2012, I notice the gentleman punching holes from Winnipeg is Lloyd Smith.

A photo of myself, on the left, and Felix Bachman on the right replacing a five feet wing section on a DC-9 wing cut by a snow blower blade on the taxiway in Dorval.

The bottom photo is of our group discussing how to make the repairs. In the picture, the third man from the left is lead mechanic Jos Kurdna and the other is Guy Collin the foreman.

I retired on 2001 after 32 years as mechanic and foreman at Dorval Base .

We received this request from Virginia Turner

We recently saw your web site and wonder if you may recall Ross Peyton of Peyton Lodge-Pangnirtung and then NWT, now known as Nunavut and owner of Peyton Lodge at Clearwater Fjord. I am writing to also inquire about brochures printed by Nordair about fishing arctic char in Clearwater Fjord.
