    Just 2 aircraft today taken while taking a very quick drive along the North end. Always nice though to see a 737-200. Raglan is a large nickel mine in Northern Quebec and this aircraft ferries both crews and cargo to and from the mines, which explains the gravel kit.

    No worries, it protects the aircraft from damage when landing on gravel landing strips. See an example below.

    They also have small pipes extending below the engine towards the front to prevent gravel from entering the engine intake.

    Wonderful weather today and nice to be outside. Wish the Avianca would not have been the rather dull Star Alliance livery.
