Bell 47-D1 Helicopter in B&W
This helicopter is being restored in the configuration of one owned by the Ontario Lands and Forests in 1953. That helicopter was the first to be owned by a government agency in Canada. Our Bell 47D was donated to the CBHC by Canadore College in North Bay. The Bell 47 was the first helicopter allowed for civilian use.
You can not touch, but you can photograph. The museum does include many interactive exhibits and with great hands on activities for all kids.
The Bushplane museum includes two theatres at the Centre, one of which is a 3D sensory experience.
There is much to reflect on at this excellent destination, history, technology, the environment. ( See the links above for more information. Their web site includes many useful resources for educators, parents, students & the curious.)
