Air to Air with a Beaver

Last week I had the opportunity to capture some images of the latest production from Luskintyre Aircraft Restorations, a magnificent Beaver seaplane for Blue Sky Airways.Mottys-DHC-Beaver-VH-CXS-Luskintyre-1410-ASO

The aircraft is surprisingly large, and even more so on a pair of floats, and it towered above everything else in the hangar.Mottys-DHC-Beaver-VH-CXS-Luskintyre-1485-ASO

    1. G’day Garth,

      It does have the registration (VH-CSX) applied, just under the tailplane. It’s just not very visible in the photos, being in black on the dark blue band.

      Cheers,
      Motty.
