Here we have a reproduction of the Curtiss HS-2L, another flying boat that was Canada's first bush plane. This reproduction is the only complete version of the plane in the world.
Next to it is the hull of the original plane it's based on, recovered from the lake in northern Ontario it crashed into.
Here we have the Norseman, a bush plane well suited to the vastness of the Canadian interior. It's planes like this that opened up isolated communities for regular contact- which remains today, as much of the country is only accessible by air.
I stepped back a bit in time by coming back to this. The Bobel-Morane is a 1910 innovation, a light monoplane. This is the last surviving model of the plane in the world today.
