Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bush Pilots of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario (Lac du Bonnet)

This plaque was erected in commemoration of aircraft pilots who, in the 1920s and 1930s, flew into remote and virtually uncharted areas of Manitoba and northwestern Ontario to service new mining developments. These flights led to established air routes linking isolated northern communities with the south.
