CYMW:  N46 16 22 W75 59 26


The SOPFEU fleet based there (forest fire patrol).

A quiet airport hidden in the mountains, north of Montreal.  Here, forest and lakes are the unchallenged masters !  The airport also serves as home base for a squadron of forest patrol aircraft and water bombers of the SOPFEU, the government forest fire combat agency.

Those pictures were taken at a mini fly-in organized by the local pilots.
