The de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver is a STOL (Short Takeoff or Landing) aircraft, that became famous the world over as a bush plane. The Beaver was sold to more than 50 countries and primarily used for cargo and passenger hauling, aerial application (like crop dusting and aerial topdressing), and has been widely adopted by armed forces as a utility aircraft that could carry six people or almost 1000 kg of cargo. The U.S. Army Air Corps purchased several hundred (U.S. laws had to be changed to accommodate the Army and Air Force’s desire to purchase foreign military equipment) and nine DHC-2s are still in service with the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary (Civil Air Patrol) for search and rescue. Starting in 1947, 1,657 Beavers were built until the original production line shut down in 1965. More than one third of all Beaver aircraft are still operational and lovingly restored examples can fetch up to $500,000.
