Description:
Photograph from 1930 of the air mail plane that was forced to land on the Charles Jull farm on the 10th Concession due to severe weather. The photograph is accompanied by a photocopy of an article describing what happened.
Inscriptions:
This air mail plane flew every day between Toronto and Windsor over Harley carrying mail (circa 1930). In a severe winter storm, it was forced to land on the Charles Jull farm on the 10th Concession, now owned by Wayne Ireland. The mail was unloaded and taken to Burford in Jull's Buick Coupe to be sent on by train. When the storm was over, the oil was drained from the plane and reheated on a kerosene burner. With the help of Roy Reavely, Julius Kush and Gordon Harley, the oil was put back in the plane and it was able to get air borne. The pilot was a Captain Young and he had an artificial leg.
