Not as common in northwestern Ontario as it used to be, in the late 1990s flying off the ice made a comeback in Sioux Lookout, Ontario. The 1,500-foot ice strip at Pelican Lake has been the scene of a lot of action. In this photo, Bernie Cox raises the tail of C-GMGD, North Star AirÕs Beaver. It was headed south for a much-needed paint job.

A view of most of the airplanes parked on the lake in front of the the Slate Falls Airways building, including C-GYHI, Colin WidmeyerÕs beautiful rebuilt 1978 Cessna 180K. Winter/spring 1998.

The Slate FallsÕ Cessna 206, C-GPCR, on Kehler fixed-penetration skis, is airborne from the ice strip with Kent Van Vliet at the controls.
