Thanks Jim,
Your praise is much appreciated. The GH2 and the AF in the zoom lens
worked surprisingly well as the planes were swishing by at about 70 - 80 
miles an hour and I was very pleased with the results.
The last Dehavilland Beaver was made in 1967 and over 6,000 beavers were 
produced. They are the "yellow taxis" of the North and West Coasts
and I am amazed at how many are still flying. I regularly take them (or a 
Twin Otter) to get to and from Pender Island).
Thanks again
