About 1960 in the far north, Canada, an RCMP Otter breaks through the clouds looking for the landing strip on the frozen lake.

Nice piece of work makes me think of this .I am reading a book at the moment about the transporting of aircraft from the USA to locations during WW11 .Don McVicar -Ferry Pilot - tells of very cold miles of ice and snow looking for the smallest clues https://www.createspace.com/5487244 :)

Thanks for taking a look Neil, Trumper.
Trumper, it took a special person to fly in those kinds of conditions. Thanks for the link.

Nice work Gray. This reminds me of a book I read years ago - "The Bush Pilots" by JA Foster. The pioneering days of flying the Canadian wilderness are full of amazing stories. Your piece is a great tribute to those who fly the same wilderness today.

Hey thanks, Mark. I did this illustration for a particular event in a book. The old bush pilots have quite the stories to tell.
