Description : This artefact is the flap and aileron section of an airplane wing. The wing has been constructed out of aluminum and painted a bright red. The flap surface consists of a number of raised ridges that run from the leading edge to the trailing edge of the wing. It has been constructed by riveting sheet aluminum over a frame. The wing has been heavily damaged.
Commentaires : Given Battle Harbour's location off the coast of Labrador on Battle Island, transportation to and from the settlement was either by sea or by air. Although the movement of the majority of individuals to the island was by ship, it was not uncommon for some Government officials and others to be brought to the island by plane. In July of 1976 two federal weights and measures inspectors were flown to Battle Harbour to inspect and certify a number of scales that were being use in the company stores to ensure they were in compliance with federal standards. The inspectors and their pilot left Battle Harbour on Sunday in foggy conditions. As they banked around behind the town their wing caught a rock escarpment and slammed into the hill side. It was not until the following day that the locals were able to determine what had happened and check for survivors. All three men died in the crash.
Fonctions : This section of wing was part of a plane that crashed on Battle Harbour in July of 1976.
