N746KA (cn AC-746B) As you probably know by now, I try to catch the action in all types of weather. I was tracking a few inbound turbo-props that I didn’t recognize. I managed to catch KCR746, an SAA227-AC Metro III, registered to Kolob Canyons Air Service, arriving on RWY 6L from Memphis (KMEM). I got a new airline and tail for the database but soon after these shots, I slipped on wet leaves in the grass and tumbled down the small hill at one of the well-known spotting sights near the approach of RWY 6L. The fall resulted in a very loud “pop” and painful tear in my leg and knee. Those of you who have spotted there before know of the tree that blocks our shots. I was attempting to walk around it in hopes for that “better angle.” I underwent surgery to repair the damage the next morning and will be laid up for a few months. Needless to say, I was clumsy and let a few leaves get the best of me. For the rest of you; please be careful out there and watch your footing.

N162MC (cn AC-746B) This is Northcoast Executive Airlines, pulling into the gate at Dayton General South. This is the start up airline that served BKL, and the airline that started me down the path to Dispatching. This airline I learned it all, I was the Flight Following Supervisor, weather observer, Assistant Director of Stations, did security screening, ticket counter and reservations. OPShots is the only known web site that will have a photo of this airline. I cannot find any info on this aircraft, so I believe it is now scrapped
