Walkaround De Havilland DHC-2 Beaver

The "De Havilland" Canada DHC-2 Beaver is a single-engined, high-wing, propeller-driven, STOL aircraft. Developed by de Havilland Canada it is primarily known as a bush plane. It is used for cargo and passenger hauling, aerial application (crop dusting and aerial topdressing), and has been widely adopted by armed forces as a utility aircraft. The United States Army purchased several hundred. Over 1,600 Beavers were produced until 1967. Many are now flown by bush pilots in Canada.
