It took twenty days, from June 6 to 26, to complete the New Brunswick portion of he project. “Because the season started earlier there, it was possible to deploy almost he entire fleet from the six operational airstrips before shifting part of it to Quebec.”
DDT on 1,040,000 acres via 40 Stearman [Webb et al. 1961; Blais et al. in Prebble 1975] Airstrips used were Cap Chat, Laverendrye, Nouvelle and Farm Lake (Webb et al. 1961). Spraying wound up for the year on June 29.
Accidents: One Stearman crashed into the bush out of Budworm City, with no injury to the pilot [probably N9719H below]. “Less fortunate was pilot Sam LeFever of Lancaster, Ohio, who ended up in hospital with a fractured shoulder when his plane [N4787B], crash-landed in a heavily wooded area near Horne’s Gulch airstrip.” This location, pictured below, according to the Department of Transport accident card, was actually 40 km northwest of Kedgwick, NB.
