La Vigilance crashed in 1922 in a lake near Kapuskasing, Ontario. The colour image above is an artist's recreation of the plane's mishap. The remains were rescued almost 5 decades later, and the restored aircraft is now on display at the Canada Aviation & Space Museum in Ottawa. For a brief account of its rescue, see La Vigilance.
