"Hug a Bush Pilot Today"
We recently stumbled across a blog article that truly captures the essence of the Midnight Sun Fly In. In "Hug a Bush Pilot Today", Kathryn Birchwood of FrozenTrini features the 2015 Midnight Sun Fly In and acknowledges the bush pilots who helped open up the Canadian North.
In her words, "Without the bush pilots of the early 20th century, there would probably not have been a city of Yellowknife, a large-scale Northern mining industry, nor would the North have become as accessible as it is today. These days they still fly people and cargo to and from the bush, whether it be geologists on an exploration trip, or hunters to bush-camps or cabins, or taking supplies for crews battling wild fires."
