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.
