1994 Curtiss HS-2L

Used by the military during World War I, the Curitss HS-2L later became an important bush aircraft in Canada. The country's first bush flying operation began in June 1919 when survey flights were conducted from Lac-a-la-Tortue, Quebec.

The first Canadian civil Curtiss HS-2L, named La Vigilance, was delivered there by pilot Stuart Graham, acting navigator Madge Graham and engineer Walter Kahre who had flown from the former Unted States Naval Air Station at Darthmouth, Nova Scotia.
