Inuvik air


This old plane is set up on a pole, near the edge of town. It’s intended as a momunent to deceased small-aircraft pilots, who crashed anywhere in the north.

Considering so much northern exploration has been done by airplane — and many communities are still only accessible by air — it seems like a proper thing to commemorate.

(Ironic note: This is the third time the plane has been installed. The last two times, wind blew it right off the pole, thus ‘crashing’ the crash monument.)
