TAIL ART: Orca Air

TAIL ART: Orca Air, specifically Capt. Sigmund Sort  and area manager Lorne Acheson, invited NEWS editor John Harding to Qualicum Beach Airport on Thursday to have a look at the art now covering the tail of their recently-refurbished CPAK aircraft. Renowned artist Roy Henry Vickers, who has flown to Tofino using Orca Air for years, designed the art on the tail. “The ocean, the orca dorsal fin and people were all components of the thought process which led to the design artwork which Orca has incorporated,” Vickers wrote. What’s more, Capt. Sort then took Harding on a 30-minute flight around the Parksville Qualicum Beach area, which is reflected in photos on our Facebook page (www.facebook.come/PQBNews). The NEWS offers its thanks to Orca, Capt. Sort and Acheson for this outstanding gift to our readers.
