Transport

 The De Havilland Beaver is an iconic bushplane, with some of them still in service today.


More bushplanes can be found beside it.


This is the Reliant.


Here we have a throwback in the form of a biplane, albeit one more advanced than its earlier counterparts: the Stearman Speedmail.


Closing out today, here's what we'll look at tomorrow.

  8. My husband worked in an isolated community along the Newfoundland coast in the 70s and sometimes travelled by bush plane. Quite scary by all reports!
