One of a kind, this was the first all-metal Canadian designed bush plane. With a parasol wing and rear mounted cockpit, it could carry a tonne of freight or 8 persons. It crashed in Northern Ontario in 1940. The engine and 75 pounds of gold were salvaged. Recovered many years later and restored and is now on display at the Western Canadian Air Museum in Winnipeg.
