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.

Fascinating. Bush planes, I think I saw one near Lake Champlain a few weeks ago.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete

I wonder if the Speedmails delivered the mail?ReplyDelete
Tienen estar en buen estado de conservación, esos aviones que aún se están usando.ReplyDelete
