Experience the exhilaration of take off in a vintage Beaver bush plane, the freedom of flight, the history of fighting fires from the sky, and the unexpected drama of setting "her" down. Using the Object Theatre format that Science North, Sudbury, pioneered, Wings Over the North at the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre in Sault Ste. Marie is an 'uplifting' experience like no other!
As the story of bush planes in Ontario is unveiled through Pilot Ron and his canine co-pilot Charlie's adventures, the story is brought to life through objects and artifacts right in the theatre, and special lighting and environmental effects that make for an unforgettable flight.
