Gone But Not Forgotten
Like many, I was shocked to hear that Alex Bahlsen was killed when the plane he was piloting crashed on Gabriola Island just off of the West coast near Nanaimo BC.
This photo is of Alex whom I met when He lived just east of Caley AB. I shot the photo of Alex while attending a fly-in breakfast being held on his farm that included an air-strip.
In the photo Alex is adding oil to the radial engine of his classic Stearman biplane.

Here is another photo of Alex coming in to land while piloting the Stearman......
