“Interesting history”

Spirit of Harbour Grace
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

I had no idea Amelia Earhart left from Heart's Content on her trans-Atlantic flight. There's a good summary of the area's aviation history as well as the wreck of the SS Kyle which remains stuck aground right by the DC-3 memorial to Amelia Earhart.

The display is nice. Lucky enough to see a bald eagle leave when we walked the boardwalk! Make sure you take the time to find the airfield and GO! Take “ the path less traveled”!

The plane and statue of Amelia Earhart are just beside the highway. Worth a stop to understand the history of transatlantic flight. How things have changed.

The "Spirit of Harbour Grace" is a DC-3 plane. There are a couple of information boards telling its history and there is also a Visitor's Information Center right beside the plane site.
There is a statue of Amelia Earhart here as well and in the river is the wreck of the S S Kyle. Not really much to do here but it is worth a quick stop.

There's not much to see, but this can be combined with viewing the Amelia Earhart statue and the SS Kyle wreck and even take in a short boardwalk on the bay. Interesting for the history of the area
