Photo: The Roar of the Rotors

Vancouver Harbour is a busy place. Beyond all the cruise ships and container ships that come to unload tourists and load up exports, respectively, it's also a fairly significant water aerodrome, dominated by floatplanes that serve smaller communities along the British Columbia coast and on the islands. There's also a passenger heliport, from which the helicopter airline Helijet makes regular passenger runs between Vancouver and Victoria.

Yesterday, I caught C-GHJL, one of Helijet's five S-76A Spirits, just as it began to take off. The sound of the rotors seemed to be echoing off every wall that faced the water.
