The helicopter was put on a homemade lazy Susan for the close up shots. The location is between the 1st and 2nd Othello Tunnels
Pilot - Chuck Tamburro
Shea De La Mare, who works at the Williams Lake Regional Airport, sent me these pictures and let me know the helicopter used during the filming is alive and well. Shea was able to confirm this with the Helicopter's Log Book and Registration on the side ( C-GTPH ) The only thing that has changed over the years is the paint scheme.
