Me with cousins Richard and Marianne in the great space at the rear of the Pilot – unfortunately it was the only place that didn’t have aviation artwork. Oops!

Some of the great artwork in the Pilot – a Canso with its crew.

Yvonne Quick, an aviation legend in her own right, cuts the huge cake I bought for the event. Thank goodness some groups of tourists wandered through to help us out.

The Book Cellar was on hand with copies of Polar Winds, which owner Judith Drinnan artfully arranged.
