Walking better – feeling better


Bell CH-136 'Kiowa' Helicopter

Must be getting time to go back to work.  With  a day and a half left until my “vacation” is over, the gout is finally going away and the surgery has almost completely healed.

Yesterday was still very painful but I had to get out of the house.  Ventured out to the museum to find that they’ve taken the Kiowa out of storage.  The Bell CH-136 ‘Kiowa’ helicopter was used by the Canadian Forces from 1971 to 1996.  This particular airframe (serial #136230) was originally based in Lahr Germany before being transferred to Downsview where it was retired.  It could certainly use some work but will certainly make a fine exhibit when cleaned up.
