2005 Airports: St-Mathias, Qc

CSP5 - N45 30 03 W73 14 30

This airport is the location of a renowned maintenance facility (B.L. Aviation).  It has a gravel runway and a nice seabase nearby, on the beautiful Richelieu river.

My pictures were taken in March 2003 when there was still snow on the ground and then again in July 2005:
