DeHaviland-Canada L-20 Beaver (3013)

DeHaviland-Canada L-20 Beaver (3013)
Originally designed as a utility aircraft for service in Canada's rugged north, this plane was valued by both the U.S. Army and Air Force. The U.S. purchased some 980. It could be fitted with skis or floats and was used for observation and light transport duties. Though not very fast (155 MPH maximum), they were quick to get off the ground. A fully loaded L-20 could clear a 50 foot obstacle while using only 1,200 feet of runway. This plane at Castle Air Museum came from the Department of Agriculture.
