From that angle in flight you can really see the familiar lines of the DHC Otter and Twin Otter.

For sure! Hmmm ... One of the Alberni Airways pair on floats for the Port Alberni Harbour Quay to Ucluelet run? Maybe in an August 1975 centennial livery?

I got pulled down the https://dominionofbc.miraheze.org rabbit-hole yet again!

Browsing BE English, I was intrigued to see that "Yod-dropping is present in all BC dialects". Does that suggest more immigration from East Anglia and environs than in OTL? Or is it just a rationalization? (There is certainly lots of yod/yod-dropping inconsistency in OTL BC usage.)

For those curious (see what I did there?), yod-dropping refers to losing the small 'y' sound inserted between consonents and vowels.

BTW: Yod-dropping is distinct from YOD-dropping which means never having to go back to CFB Cold Lake ever again  ;)

hey Litvyak,
The Doves are nice, can you include the D.H. 114 Heron in this set of profiles ?

I may get my hands on one in the next 12 months ....
