“Yeah Jay, I resigned from my deputy’s job at Devil Track to take the position here as Director of Operations for Moosehead County Regional Airport.”
“Is there enough work to keep you busy?” Chris asked, “Its always been pretty-sleepy at the airfield.”
“Well—I’m also the main staff. Me and Mary Halloran, our tower operator.” AJ laughed.
Not too unexpectedly—it was then that Boomer and Mac performed a high-speed flyover…
…to give you, GENTLE READER, a view of the entire airfield and the backside of the South Bluff of Danger Bay Harbor.
Not much of a cliffhanger—a Friday the 13th cliffhanger can’t end well, methinks—eh?
Season 8—Chapter 10—British Columbia—Episode 9:
Continuing our story—back in the hanger… “That concludes the tour of the administration building and the control tower.”
“Thanks AJ,” Jay grinned, “Now, how ’bout a tour of your parts department?”
Nobody EVER asked to see the parts department—AJ HAD done a masterful job of organizing the parts, logically. But even the maintenance techs showed no interest in how it was organized—but were impressed at how fast requested parts appeared, “You must have an IRL job that requires parts—right?”
“You could say that, yes,” Jay replied and was just about to add to that when AJ reached into his pocket for his cell.
“Hold that thought Jay,” AJ said pulling out the phone, “This is AJ—WHAT? Okay—I’ll send out a search. Have you contacted the harbormaster? OK—good. “We have a boat foundering and need to send help. How soon can you get in the air?”
“Where?” Mac answered.
“That’s the probelm—we don’t exactly know. Somewhere northeast of Eagle Point.”
“Great. Boomer and I will get the fast-movers up high to get a broad view of the lake, the rest of you team-up and start the search at Eagle Point with as many planes as we can crew-up.”
“Master Chief Pettigrew called, he’s scrambling all his search & rescue assets as we speak,” AJ shouted, “He has them heading towards Eagle Point.”
“AJ, You’re with me, I need your keen eyes. Daisy (as well as the rest of the dog-people) is not anywhere near.”
Larry and Flutters manned the Cessna 150, Jay and Susie, the big DeHaviland float-plane, and Sarah and Chris the L16 float plane.
The seach began…
