Stash-8

When I took Wayne to the airport this week, I saw an interesting sight.  Taxiing by was a Dash-8 owned by North Cariboo Air with a mustache on the nose. I grabbed a quick shot as it was moving past.


I did a bit of research online and learned that their fleet of planes are participating in Movember which supports men's health, men's mental health, and prostate cancer.  Starting on November 1, men around the world start clean shaven, then grow mustaches.  Their participation helps raise awareness about these important issues and raise funds at the same time. Thank you North Cariboo Air.  You made me more aware of these important issues. -- Margy

Movember is really becoming a popular event for the month. Love the airplane with the moustache.

Crafty - I've heard of Movember before, but never took the time to research what it really meant (beyond the mustaches) until I saw this plane. It did the trick. - Margy

Cool shot of the plane.

Nice plane shot! That's not our local airport though. Vancouver? Bellingham?

I'm sponsoring my brother in his attempt to grow one, so I did know about Movember.
