Bleriot XI - Virtual tour of the 1st Plane over Montreal

To mark the 100th anniversary of the first flight of an airplane over Montreal, it is possible to admire in Montreal city hall a replica of the Bleriot XI, dubbed "Le Scarabée", which had made this flight in 1910.

In the context of the Great Week of Aviation in Montreal: Count Jacques de Lesseps left, 2 July 1910, the fields of Lakeside (now Pointe-Claire) on board the aircraft to overfly the St. Lawrence to the island of St. Helena before taking over the town hall to return to Lakeside. His flight lasted 49 minutes.

For ten years, a team of volunteers from the Canadian Aviation Heritage Centre, located in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, worked to build piece by piece this replica of the Bleriot XI, which should make its first flight later this year.

The exhibition is held in Montreal City Hall until July 31, 2010.
