A visit to the Manitoba Aviation museum in Winnipeg, Canada

DE HAVILLAND DHC-2 BEAVER
The de Havilland Beaver was designed and built in Canada, and first flew on August 16, 1947. It is an all-metal bushplane designed to operate on skis, wheels, or floats. Its rugged dependability and exceptional performance made it a favourite with bush pilots and operators.
Over the years, 1,962 Beavers were built and exported to 62 countries, including 981 to the USA for both civil and military use.

The Beaver was the first aircraft built outside of the United States purchased by the US Military. Approximately 900 of the aircraft were bought. They were used extensively for support and medical roles. They also played a major role with the US Military Forces in the Korean conflict.
