Flying Steam Shovel - the story
In 1902 Lou Gagnon flew a steam powered helicopter in Rossland. This is the story, narrated by Jack McDonald, Jack Fisher, and Craig Weir. The account of the flight was written by Father Thomas Freney in 1945, based on his conversations with, among others, Joseph Maderie, an eye witness and room mate of Lou Gagnon.
