blogGAR: Kenn Borek Air Migration Through Colorado

The steady trickle of aircraft refueling in Colorado began a few weeks ago with aircraft stopping off at both Colorado Springs and Centennial Airports before the final leg to their Calgary base. Here the crews will get a well earned rest before flying northwards to begin a season in the Arctic. Truly, pole-to-pole aviators.

After a gloriously sunny day on Saturday, when I missed the single BT67 that passed through, Sunday saw the cloud roll in with varying degrees of light, making shooting with the snow still on the ground a little challenging. But the prospect of two BT67s only ten minutes apart, and the fact that they would be on the ground at the same time, was something I couldn't pass up. You can never tire of shooting these classic Douglas aircraft.

It was also good to reacquaint myself with Captain Keith Krueger, with whom I had chatted on a stopover back in March 2010 when he was flying another BT67.

Of course I still shot a few of the other interesting aircraft while waiting for the Borek airframes. It would have been rude not to!
