ok, perhaps not "aviation" news, but definitely history.  pics and price in the link.  wow.

In 1927, Charles Lindbergh was celebrated worldwide after accomplishing the first solo nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean in the airplane he helped design, The Spirit of St. Louis. His book, We, about the journey became a bestseller and Lindbergh received many prestigious honors including the Distinguished Flying Cross medal from President Calvin Coolidge. After his marriage to Anne Morrow Lindbergh in 1929, the couple teamed up to break the transcontinental speed record in a flight from Los Angeles to New York in just less than 15 hours, and traveled throughout the world promoting air travel and safety. The Lindberghs owned a waterfront home in Darien, Connecticut on Long Island Sound where they lived off and on until Charles died in 1974 and Anne in 2001. While living at the home, Anne wrote several best-selling books and Charles kept his seaplane moored in the cove off the front yard, convenient for day-trip flights. The Nantucket-style home and its large guest cottage, which they named Tellina, are now for sale, priced at $11.75 million and $6.3 million respectively.

Located in the upscale Tokeneke neighborhood on 1.77 waterfront acres with 635-feet of shoreline on a peninsula jutting into Scotts Cove in Long Island Sound, the 5,663-square-foot, six-bedroom, six-bath home was built in 1919 with large arched glass doors and windows to bring the extensive water views inside. There is a large kitchen with breakfast room, dining room and fireplace in the living room. Grounds contain two garages with the capacity for five cars and a dock with space for two boats along with the option to drop additional moorings. Additional outdoor structures include waterside pergolas and terraces for entertaining and both open and covered porches. The adjacent waterfront guest cottage with 1,100-feet of shoreline, named Tellina by the Lindberghs, is also for sale, either with the house or separately. It is on 2.84 acres, is 1,529 square feet, has four bedrooms, three baths and was built in 1936. The landscape was originally designed by the Washington, DC-based Oehme, van Sweden, responsible for the landscaping at the Federal Reserve, World War II Memorial and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Both main and guest homes have mature gardens, rock walls and open lawns with unobstructed views of the cove and beach landscape.

thoughts and prayers for all.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Four people have died after two floatplanes collided in midair Monday near the southeast Alaska town of Ketchikan, injuring 10 other people, one critically, authorities said.

Three patients were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. One 61-year-old man in satisfactory condition, one 61-year-old woman in satisfactory condition and one 67-year-old man in serious condition. A woman in her 60s is expected to arrive in serious condition around early Tuesday.

The planes collided under unknown circumstances, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said in an email to The Associated Press. Floatplanes have pontoons mounted under the fuselage so they can land on water.Eleven people were inside the single-engine de Havilland Otter DHC-3 when it went down. Ten were taken to a Ketchikan hospital. One person was missing, but has since been located and was declared deceased, according to a U.S. Coast Guard spokesperson.One patient was listed in critical condition, and the others were in fair or good condition, according to Mischa Chernick, a spokeswoman for PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center.

Five people were aboard the other plane, a de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver.

Three from that flight were declared deceased, and the other two are still missing.

A passenger on the Royal Princess cruise ship told the AP that 14 people on the downed floatplanes were cruise passengers.

“It's very somber. I said earlier it's a macabre type feeling," said Jim Ryan, one of the passengers now aboard Royal Princess. “Just incredibly unfortunate,. We are sad for the people who are deeply affected, you know the family members who were involved in this."

Is there another feed where I could hear the split up Montreal sectors coming from Gander?

The CYFB Montreal Center feed covers the northern sectors. Again it will depend on how they have the sectors configured as to how far south will be able to hear. At peak times there could be a couple of sectors between CYFB and CYTS that will not be covered. During slow times when they have them all joined up you will hear the same controller and frequencies on the CYTS feed. The only problem with the CYFB feed is that it also covers the low altitude frequencies that can be very busy at times blocking out the high altitude traffic.

FYI satradar24 has partial coverage of this area so you might be able to catch some of the CPDLC SATCOM messages as well.

For example this handoff from Gander to Montreal.

I'm not associated with that feed but as far as I can tell nothing has changed with it. Listening to the archives from last night and all the northern frequencies were cross-coupled and could be heard okay all the way up to the CYFB area. What you will hear will depend on how Montreal has the sectors configured, which will vary depending on traffic volume and time of day (ie: night shift). It's normal during peak times for that frequency to only work the sectors closer to CYTS.

Thank you for more great info as always. Is there another feed where I could hear the split up Montreal sectors coming from Gander?

I don't know much about airline operations, but I'm guessing that the truck driver will not be employee of the month?

In the past hearing CYTS Montreal Noranda feed I could hear aircraft coming west right after leaving Gander airspace but now I am only hearing aircraft checking in very close to CYTS. Are some frequencies gone or moved to another feed?

Thank you very much to the feed providers!
