06/02/2006: "Flying tour of Sudbury"

Last night Kate and I had the privledge of taking a flying tour of Sudbury courtesy of Tim Christie. Tim took us up in a Cessna 172 for a nice 45 minute tour of the area. It was my first time in a small aircraft, but a blast from the past for Kate from her Air Cadet days.

I was able to snap quite a few pictures, but it was a hazy day, so some didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. A larger selection of them can be found here

A couple pictures to note:
Stobie 7 shaft (and the building I'm currently working in)

Stobie 9 Shaft:

My house (on the corner just below and left of my neighbour's pool):

Delki Dozi Cycling track (1km loop around a pond):

Inco Divisional Shops (I spent a year working there):

Inco Smelter complex and super stack:

The rest of the pictures can be found here

Hey, nice shots. I especially like the superstack one. It may LOOK like we're lower than the stack, but obviously we can't be because that would be against air regulations.

BTW, I can't read anything on your blog without highlighting it.
