Sad to see this happen, have a lot of good memories as a child of that base and flying with my Grandfather George Charity. The black and white photos were taken sometime in the late 40s or early 50s. I have several pictures from George of his days flying in the north. below are some pictures of the planes notably, Austin’s first Beaver CF-FHX. The color picture is of the Georgian bay Airways base that was torn down in the late 70s and is now a park.
