Randall & Kat's Flying Photos

Here are photographic albums of several flying trips that we have made in southern British Columbia. I fly out of the Boundary Bay Airport where I obtained my Private Pilot license from Centennial Flying School. I recently purchased a 1974 Cessna Cardinal RG.

The purpose of these photo albums is both to provide us with the ability to remember our flights, and to document the flight routes and scenery for others who may be interested. We make an effort to capture the spectacular natural beauty of this part of the world, as well as provide views of towns and airports that other pilots may find valuable. I have scanned the local VFR charts and some of the albums include maps with the flight route on them so you can follow along if you wish.

We are not shy about the volume of photos - in fact most of these albums have hundreds of them. When you enter an album you will see an index of thumbnails down the left of the page, and a narrative page on the right where large photos are displayed. The native size of the photos is 1280 by 960 pixels so they are best viewed on a very large monitor. If your screen is smaller the photos will be re-sized to fit in your browser window. If you have a small screen and/or a slow Internet connection, you may find this site to be rather painful. Sorry about that.
