Photo of Mark Koneff.On Sunday, May 22, we caught a short break in the rather miserable weather that’s been the rule for May in the Maritimes and finished Nova Scotia. After a short 1-hour flight across the Bay of Fundy, we were back at Bangor, Maine, for an annual inspection on N769. We’ll be down a few days, then heading north to Newfoundland and Labrador to conclude the survey.
