Float plane back in business

After more than $1 million in renovations, the float plane that flipped over on Lakeland Bay just over a year ago took to the air again last Thursday.

The de Havilland single-Otter C-GUTL is used mainly to fly people and supplies to remote lodges. And the plane completed two trips to outposts operated by Northern Wilderness Outfitters on its first day back in service.

Local businesses which represent the tourism sector most likely got a financial shot in the arm over the U.S. Memorial Day weekend.

More than 4,100 vehicles carrying some 13,800 non-residents crossed the international bridge into Fort Frances between last Thursday and Sunday—some waiting in line for more than two hours to reach Canada Customs.
