Picked up my Blue DL1000K7 from Alberta suzuki in Edmonton and rode her home today. Nice gently little break in ride, love her already. To top off the day I saw another V-strom(red) heading in the opposite direction just the other side of Bonnyville.

Cold Lake, there's a blast from the past. I was there from 81-85, at AETE. Is it still there?

AETE is still there and operating. doing a lot of flying with new gear as we set up the upgraded F-18 avionics package and flight testing new aircraft purchases.

It's nice to know AETE's still going strong. I loved working at that place. I spent about 2 years working in the "design lab", then about 2 years in the "installations lab", the lab responsible for installing the flight test instrumentation on the aircraft. I worked on an old T33 (with original avionics!), some F5's, a 104, some helicopters (which helped me get my subsequent job at MBB/Eurocopter), but I mostly worked on the F-18, the first one in Canada -- #701.

Ah, the good old days... :)
