It began high enough. I heard it fly over at noon. I grabbed a screen shot of the flight radar. One has to make a decision: do I grab my camera and run outside? I did not. As I watched it on the radar, I realized it just kept coming. I've seen it before.
It was an interesting path. By the end it was figure eights. Sander Geophysics is a company that does high-res airborne surveys for petroleum and mineral exploration, and geographical and environmental mapping. I was really curious!
They are supposed to stay above 1000'. They were close to that, but a bit worrisome.
I went outdoors and heard it coming. Nope, not this one!
Here it is. It came back again. By 2:35 it was a pain in the butt and I grabbed some photos.
Canadian Aviation laws say they should be minimum 1000' over built up areas. We're fairly rural, so maybe that's how they get away with it. My patience is shot, I guess.
My Christmas/birthday trail camera does not work. It is discouraging. I am so disappointed. I only have two working right now. We're going to drive into the city to return it, although I bought it online from Cabela's distribution centre out west, mine is sold out. Cabela's is owned by an American company. They usually have good service.
💻The poor kids are going to online school today. I feel badly for them. We shall all have to carry on. We still haven't exchanged Christmas present with our Ottawa family.
