Artist's Description

The de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver was designed in 1946 after WWII from the ground up to be a bush plane with civilian applications. Its high-wing, propeller driven, single-engine airframe was over-powered by a Pratt & Whitney 450 HP Wasp Jr. engine with STOL capabilities. It was adaptable to use wheels, skis, or floats giving it unparalleled access to remote areas and making it one of the most successful aircraft in Canadian history. The Royal Canadian Mint commemorated the Beaver on a special edition Canadian quarter in November 1999.
