This plane is a weathervane at the Whitehorse Airport. It swivels into the wind on its post.

Hi Vicki, I guess the winds must be fairly strong round there then! Hope you are well, all the best to you and yours, Mac

Interesting use for a classic plane!

The only time I've been close to being airsick was in a DC-3, many, many years ago. It was a beautiful day with small, puffy clouds--and we were flying between them. Lots of bumpiness! I was sitting beside a distinguished theologian who was calmly reading a murder mystery, so I just couldn't get sick ... and I didn't.

By the way: nice photo!
