"A Curtiss pusher biplane, 'The Shooting Star', at the Regina Exhibition."

"While air travel eventually became an important means of travel, it was more of a novelty during the 1920s. The barnstormers crisscrossed the province to entertain the people in cities and towns. In the north air travel was an essential means of opening up the land, whether it was summer or winter."
