FUN FACT
Did you know that the plane at the Sister Mary Philips School is a replica of one flown by the famous bush pilot Punch Dickins known for flying over unmapped areas of Northern Canada and sometimes so close to the magnetic north pole that compass navigation was impossible. He was the first pilot to fly along the Arctic coastline, he made the first flight over the Barren Lands in the Northwest Territories, and he was the first to fly the full length of the Mackenzie River, a distance of 2,000 miles which he covered in 2 days. In 1930, he flew the first prospectors to Great Bear Lake where uranium was discovered and in 1936, he conducted a 10,000 mile air survey of Northern Canada. He delivered mail from Waterways, Alberta to Fort Simpson, NWT and then on to Aklavik in the Arctic.
